Attic Artifacts

Following World War II, many Americans kept souvenirs of lost loved ones or their time in the war. Many of these articles were stored in boxes or trunks and then tucked away in attics, basements, and garages for decades. In this program, students crucially evaluate a variety of primary sources related to women on the American home front during World War II.
