Look for the Artifact of the Week every Tuesday on the Anderson County Museum’s website. Each week we’ll give a behind-the-scenes look at an artifact in our archive.

This week’s feature is this World War II era first aid kit. It was distributed by the Red Cross and contains a tourniquet, bandages, other medical supplies. It even contains first aid instructions for those using the kit.
