Posted on March 20, 2019 at 11:23 AM

Exhibit opening reception is Thursday, April 4, 2019 from 5:oopm – 7:00pm.

Presented by The Alta and John Franks Foundation. When the greatest threat to the civilized world beckoned in World War II, Louisiana was ready. Massively important production, crucial military training, and enthusiastic citizens saw Louisiana at the forefront of US defense preparations. See how Louisiana helped achieve victory in World War II—and how the war that changed the world forever changed Louisiana, too.
