WWI in its day was called the war to end all wars. Today, we see the wishful thinking in the observation. Many Greencastle-Antrim veterans served in World War I, and Allison-Antrim Museum is displaying the artifacts and stories of these veterans through early 2023.

One of the veteran stories focuses on Carter Warren “Moses” Rankin, who upon enlistment in World War I, was appointed the leader of the Greencastle draftees, while on the way to Camp Green, NC. He was a private and served October 18, 1918, to January 11, 1919 in the 16th Training Co, 4th Bat, 4th Brigade. Moses worked for Landis Machine Company in Waynesboro, PA as a custodian and always enjoyed working on cars in his garage. Carter Warren “Moses” Rankin was born September 3, 1896, and died April 26, 1976, the last surviving child of Bettie and Samuel Houston Rankin. He is buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Antrim Township, Franklin County, PA
