The Frontiers of Flight Museum's new traveling exhibit titled: "Victory from Within,” opening June 27,  details the American prisoner of war experience from the Civil War to modern conflicts.  The exhibit was created by the National Park Service in cooperation with the American Ex-Prisoners of War and the Friends of Andersonville to give more citizens the opportunity to explore the American POW story. The exhibit will be on display through January 31, 2015 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum located at 6911 Lemmon Ave., Dallas, TX 75209.

The exhibit includes sections on Capture, Prison Life, Those Who Wait, and Freedom, and displays artifacts and audio-visual interviews from actual prisoners of war. The exhibit is currently in its inaugural presentation at the Andersonville Historic Site in Andersonville, Georgia, the site of a notorious Confederate prison camp during the Civil War, which serves as a memorial to all American prisoners of war.  The visit to the Frontiers of Flight Museum will be exhibit’s first appearance outside of Georgia and its third stop in the United States.
