Gold Stars

The Missouri History Museum has a very cool visual display right now, comprised of 1,075 gold stars, one for each St. Louisan who gave his or her life during WWI. There’s something about seeing all those stars together that really drives home of the point of how many lives were lost. Each of their names is also displayed there, and like the Flags of Valor that were displayed in Forest Park, it really helps put a face to war, so to speak.
