Sean's display was a very informative both for new collectors, and as a refresher, for more experienced collectors.  I cannot stress how interested I was in the display done by Agate Hunter on the Defense of the Columbia River.  I would not have learned about this area of US military history had ASMIC's annual show not been held in Portland.

 

I wish I had taken photographs of the show, but I was to busy lusting over a patch on a uniform......

A big thank you to everyone about the comments on my display. I had a great time at the show and it was nice meeting collectors from across the country. I'm glad I was able to share my collecting interest with everyone and that everyone enjoyed seeing a local display. I found some nice finds as well, it was a great show.

Here are some shots of my display. It spanned from the 1900s-WWII for artifacts, and I wrote histories for the area from the Civil War - WWII. The center piece was a 249th CA Soldier's Medal recipient's uniform.

I also took some pics of the show which I will work on posting soon.

Soldier's Medal display close up. The medal was given to eight coast artillerymen in this instance for attempting to save a navy pilot (pictured) who crashed his plane into the mouth of the Columbia River. The soldier's were beat up by the waves on the jetty during the storm and were unsuccessful in saving the pilot.

Thanks again guys. I was impressed by the display on American grenades, displayed by a collector from the northwest (as was the UDT display).  Photos of both follow.
