Partnering with the National World War I Museum, financial planning firm Waddell and Reed will bring its traveling World War I exhibit to Milwaukee on Friday, July 20, to be held in front of the Harley-Davison Museum.
Admission is free and visitors will get to experience what life was like in the trenches with 66 rare artifacts from the Great War. The exhibit will also include the flight gear of Chauncey Waddell, a World War I veteran and a founder of Waddell and Reed.
Waddell and Reed hope to raise funds as well as awareness for the preservation of the artifacts. The firm has said they will give half the donations local hosting museums and half to the national World War I Museum in Kansas City, Mo.
It may be the first time Hogs and doughboy enthusiasts find some common ground.
The event will take place between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Harley Davidson parking lot located at 400 W. Canal Street.
