    NBC 5 and the Frontiers of Flight Museum invite you to the new traveling exhibit, "Victory from Within,” now through Saturday, January 31, 2015 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum.

    The exhibit details American prisoner of war experiences 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 prisoner of war story.
     
    The exhibit includes sections on Capture, Prison Life, Those Who Wait, and Freedom and will include 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 the exhibit’s first appearance outside of Georgia and its third stop in the United States.
     
    The Frontiers of Flight Museum, a Smithsonian Institution Affiliate, is a gem in our community that attracts more than 100,000 visitors annually including 30,000 students. The museum is a learning laboratory using aviation and space flight to encourage and promote student excellence in science, technology, engineering and math.
