North Carolina Military History Museum – North Carolina Thursdays April 11, 2019

Updated April 11, 2019 with additional information after doing some more research.

I found what I thought was going to be an easy North Carolina Thursdays item to post about, but in doing research, I found there were at least several variations (think Wright Brothers) of it so I will be working on it for a future North Carolina Thursdays.

I decided instead to focus today’s North Carolina Thursdays on the North Carolina Military History Museum It’s now on my Bucket List. Note: this is a different museum from WNC Military History Museum AKA Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas – North Carolina Thursdays.  There are a few other military history museums in North Carolina. Turns out this post led me to places I hadn’t expected after doing more research after posting it.
