The Chicago Veterans for Peace My Lai Memorial Exhibit is coming to the Matheson March 1-3, 2019, as part of the weekend-long program “Lessons on the Cost of War. The exhibit and corresponding programs are sponsored by the Veterans for Peace Gainesville Chapter 14, UF’s Samuel Proctor Oral History Program , and the Matheson as part of their 50th Anniversary commemorations of the Vietnam War. Admission to the exhibit and all programs is free and will take place at the Matheson.

The My Lai Memorial Exhibit honors the Vietnamese who died in their American War. The exhibit is a strong, anti-war response to the Pentagon’s $63 million campaign commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War that attempts to glorify our unnecessary, unjust and immoral military actions in Vietnam and to promote our ongoing wars today.

**Due to the graphic nature of some of the exhibit panels it is recommended that children younger than high school age not attend.**
