- General Tommy Franks was the U.S. general leading the attack on the Taliban in Afghanistan in response to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. He also led the 2003 invasion of Iraq and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. In his travels across the world, he gathered many cultural, social and geographical items from 24 Middle East and African countries: cultural dress, one-of-a-kind handcrafted items, children's toys, ceremonial items and the first democratic ballot from Afghanistan. These and much, much more have been compiled into a must see, one of a kind 60 foot long mobile museum..
