American Military Museum

Military memorabilia from past wars

The American Military Museum, originally founded by American Legion Post 23, houses an authentic college of military and related memorabilia from past wars and periods. The Military section, on the second floor in an octagonal room, features a mannequin dressed as a combat infantry soldier in World War II, displays of uniforms and weapons from other wars, and a large model collection of ships, planes, tanks and other military vehicles from all wars. Medals of Gastonia's most decorated soldiers are also on display.

The Drum and Bugle Corps section located in Memorial Hall features the alumni memorabilia of the Rambling Rebels, for 30 years one of the premier marching and music organizations in North Carolina.
