Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Built originally to honor veterans of the Second World War, the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond now honors the Commonwealth's veterans of all conflicts including the Great War. Their display cases now hold a number of WWI items, including the unique love letter shown below.

  1. Very moving place, The folks at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond, VA. have done a lot of work over the last several years. Another place with a Great World War I display is the Virginia War Museum located in Newport News, VA.
