A new exhibit is showcasing West Virginia's role in military history.

The West Virginia Division of Culture and History says the new exhibition, "West Virginians Answering the Call," is opening Friday at the Culture Center in Charleston.

The exhibit features military uniforms, medals and insignia and arms from the West Virginia State Museum's collection and from the West Virginia National Guard.

Officials say the artifacts date from the American Revolution to Afghanistan and also include a scale model of the USS West Virginia.

The exhibition will remain on display through July 11.
