These programs introduce our youngest historians to artifacts and the life of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Americans kept souvenirs of their childhood, lost loved ones, or their time in the war. Many of these artifacts were stored in boxes or trunks and then tucked away in attics, basements, and garages for decades. This series explores sets of artifact-filled boxes to make historical connections to the past.
Studies have shown that hobbies can make individuals happier and more relaxed. Ike enjoyed several hobbies that helped him balance the enormous stresses of being a world leader.
Programs in the “Unsung Survivors” series will examine groups of individuals whose heroism in World War II was often overlooked because of their minority status and stereotypes. They witnessed, endured, and rose above the prejudices targeted at them due to their gender, race, or religion.
