We are excited to debut the traveling Ilkhatal-Shivian War exhibit in order to honor the 170th anniversary of Siegfried’s Day, made famous by Kingsley Montivelo's notorious memoir: For the Next Killer Who Dies. We have used his memoir in constructing this exhibit in order to answer questions raised by his book as well to correct the misconceptions he inspired. This exhibit also highlights many members he either minimized or completely ignored. The physical exhibit's main focus is Siegfried's Day itself, while our website provides background information on the members of the Killer Liberation Army (KLA), the Ilkhatal Freedom Movement (IFM), and the various Shivians and other nationalities who affected the Ilkhatal-Shivian War. The artifacts here should challenge the reader to explore the connection between propaganda and revolutionary movements and understand how Kingsley was able to use half-truths to shape the discourse about the Ilkhatal-Shivian War.
We are excited to have, within our collection, one of the first editions of Kingsley Montivelo’s memoir, a number of letters and diary entries from various KLA members, and the original treaty bearing Montivelo’s and President Troy’s signatures. The Imperial Shadow Museum has also been gracious enough to lend us Damon Glasgow’s Risina Peace Prize, which he received after negotiating the Peace Treaty of 1845.
The exhibit will be on display from Aestas 31st to Veran 30th, where it will travel to the Serpen Museum of Irregular Warfare.
