Traveling exhibit starts Sunday at Dacotah Prairie Museum

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – A new traveling exhibit will start on Sunday, May 26, at the Dacotah Prairie Museum in Aberdeen.

Lora Schaunaman, Curator of Exhibits at the museum talked about the exhibit which comes from the Kauffman Museum in Kansas.

She talked about why some opposed the war, while many favored the decision.

Schaunaman said the exhibit gives individuals time to pause for reflection.

The exhibit, which is free, runs from May 26 through July 7. Interestingly enough, the exhibit is contained in a recreation of a cell from the Alcatraz Prison, where Hutterite conscientious objectors were punished for refusing military participation.
