In remembrance of the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor the Stauth Museum is hosting “Infamy: December 7, 1941.” It is a powerful photographic exhibit of 62 panels that illustrates the deadly Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor – the dark day that plunged our nation headlong into World War II. The Museum is going to enhance this once in a lifetime exhibition by displaying objects and artifacts on loan from local area residents that have special meaning from their family or friends who served in World War II and have great stories behind the objects. Come see these great images, meaningful artifacts and share these great stories with your children and grandchildren! This exhibit was developed by the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world – why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today. Dedicated in 2000 as The National D-Day Museum and now designated by Congress as America’s National WWII Museum, it celebrates the American Spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage and sacrifice of the men and women who served on the battlefront and the Home Front. www.nationalww2museum.org
