* History Lecture – Evansville in WWII with Dr. James MacLeod

You're invited to attend the History Lecture – Evansville in WWII with Dr. James MacLeod.

Friday, September 11, 2020
7:00 p.m.

During World War Two, the city of Evansville was one of the most important cities in the country, manufacturing hundreds of ships, thousands of fighter planes and literally billions of other items that contributed hugely to the Allies’ victory. It was an exhilarating time of great change and opportunity for everyone who lived and worked in Evansville, but also a period of extremely difficult challenges and of profound loss. In this captivating lecture, illustrated with scores of images, James MacLeod explains how all of this industry came to be in Evansville, reveals the enormous impact that it had on social, economic and cultural life, and analyzes how the city dealt with what was a time of astonishing transformation.
