World War II Exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" (Multi-Day Event)

"Over Here and Over There" commemorates the contribution of Georgia and Georgians to the fight to win World War II, the bloodiest and most globally sweeping conflict in human history.  Georgians, along with others throughout the nation, served in multiple ways -- as soldiers, as workers producing the materiel needed to wage war, and as citizens implementing patriotic initiatives within their homes and communities.  All were "soldiers" bound together in pursuit of "one great cause."

"Over Here and Over There" was created by the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia, Dalton State College, and the Northeast Georgia History Center at Brenau University.  The exhibit is sponsored by the Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, the Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.
