World War One, fading from memory, left permanent mark on Saranac Lake

Listen to this story
On this Memorial Day weekend, an exhibit in Saranac Lake is remembering local soldiers who fought in World War I. For many of the young men from the North Country, the war in Europe was their first taste of the outside world. While the first World War has faded from living memory, there are still plenty of people whose fathers and uncles fought in the trenches of France. Brian Mann talked with curator Amy Catania, with Historic Saranac Lake, and with Kitty Peightal, who contributed her father's uniform and other artifacts for the exhibit.
