African American Military History Museum

Through the violent wind and torrential rain of the F-4 Tornado that blew through the Pinebelt on February 10, 2013, an iconic landmark and pillar of history in the heart of Downtown Hattiesburg stood strong. The beloved African American Military History Museum in Downtown Hattiesburg suffered significant damage as a result of the tornado, but hope was not lost and history was not erased. Now, a full-year later, the African American Military History Museum has opened its doors as a stronger-than-ever tribute to the endurance of its heritage – the history and legacy of the African American soldier.
