The Summer Hill Heritage Group, Noble Hill-Wheeler Memorial Center, Etowah Valley Historical Society and The Booth Western Art Museum are joining forces to honor John Morgan, Cartersville’s own famed Tuskegee Airman.  Please join us on August 1, 2024 at 5:30 at The Booth to learn more about one of our own, 1st Lt. John H. Morgan of the famed Tuskegee Airmen and to view Mary Whyte’s watercolors, ‘We the People: Portraits of Veterans in America.’
Ms. Whyte traveled at her own expense to all 50 states to paint a large-scale watercolor of one veteran from each state. The selected veterans are from all walks of life.  The Booth is hosting Ms. Whyte’s watercolor exhibit from July 20 to November 16, 2024.
One of the watercolors, the veteran selected to represent Alabama, was the Postmistress for the Tuskegee Airmen. You may know that Cartersville’s Lt. Morgan lost his life in service with the Airmen in 1944 while serving in Italy.
In addition to viewing these spectacular works of art, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our Cartersville connection to these pioneers of aviation. Bibby and Victor Morgan have accepted our invitation to share with us their recollections about their uncle a proud member of the Greatest Generation and a life that was cut way too short while defending our nation.
Please come spend this time with us and learn a little more about a special citizen and family from Cartersville/Bartow County and veterans from all around the US.
Thursday August 1, 2024.
