    The Home Fronts of Iowa, 1940-1945

    6:30PM | Council Bluffs Public Library
    400 Willow Avenue, Council Bluffs,
    As Americans geared up for World War II, each state responded according to its economy and circumstances. Iowans quickly answered the call with overwhelming enthusiasm. The home front contributions of Iowans and Americans divided into four historical fronts: the farm front, the production front, the community front, and the kitchen front.

    Drawing on historical archives and artifacts, Dr. Lisa Payne Ossian, professor of history at Des Moines Area Community College in central Iowa, analyzes the resilience and patriotism of Iowans during this time.

    This event is sponsored by Humanities Iowa and is free and open to the public.
