35th Infantry Division Museum

35idThe Museum of the Kansas National Guard is also home to the 35th Division Museum, which includes the 35th Division Hall of Fame. The 35th Infantry Division was formed in 1917 for WWI, and received three battle streamers for battles in France–Ardennes, Alsace, and Meuse-Argonne. It was mobilized in 1940 for WWII and received five additional battle streamers for distinguished service in Europe–Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes and Central Europe.

This truly remarkable display houses unique and one-of-a-kind artifacts from WWI and WWII including the Nun’s Flag; an American flag created by Nuns from Hamelin, Germany using old Nazi banners during WWII.
