World War II Event

Join Clark County Historical Society’s Archivist Natalie Fritz at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at the Heritage Center in Crabill Hall for a look at the World War II Homefront.

She will share local history sources and stories to show the wide variety of support shown on the Homefront during World War II. The people of Clark County came together to show their patriotism and support for the cause in many ways, by rationing, through collection drives, by buying bonds, by joining the workforce, by converting manufacturing in support, and so much more.

This is part of the Wittenberg’s Margaret Ermarth Institute For The Public Humanities “Knowledge Shared” Series.
