Fiery Trial and Sacrifice

New York and the First World War

Fiery Trial and Sacrifice chronicles America’s road to war and the contributions made by New York State’s military forces such as the 27th Division—proudly known as “New York’s Own;” the “Fighting 69th”—New York City’s famed Irish regiment; the 77th Division - known as “The Melting Pot Division” because many of its members were first generation immigrants; and the 369th Infantry.

- New York’s first African-American regiment which achieved wide acclaim and later became known as the “Harlem Hellfighters.” A recreated trench features display cases filled with firearms and bayonets, gas masks and grenades, trench art, personal items and medical instruments.
