V is for Victory! A Homefront Christmas

Last year, was the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. “Throughout the years, we’ve created a number of military exhibits at the museum,” according to Christine Cross, museum director, “for this anniversary, we wanted to look at life on the home front." Using newspapers from 1941-1945 to guide the exhibit, the museum matched up articles from the New London Press Republican with artifacts and photographs from the collection and on loan. This offers a unique opportunity to hear the community’s "voice" in the exhibit and to learn from people who lived through the war. During the holiday season, we add to the exhibit by exploring the homefront during Christmas.
