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

The travelling panel exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" will be on display at UWG's Ingram Library from October 13 through December 7.  There is no admission fee.  The exhibit will include displays of artifacts from local collectors of World War II memorabilia.  Three programs will be presented in conjunction with the exhibit.

"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.

Mobilizing the Arsenal of Democracy
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Historian Charles Chamberlain, a specialist in Southern history and World War II, will speak on "Mobilizing the Arsenal of Democracy: How Georgia was Transformed Economically and Socially by World War II" on Tuesday, October 28, at 11:00 a.m. at UWG's Ingram Library.  This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibit "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" on display at Ingram Library October 13 through December 7.

Dr. Chamberlain will explore Georgia's profound economic and social transformation by focusing on the impact of American mobilization for World War II.  He will discuss how President Franklin Roosevelt used America's mobilization for war to raise the standard of living within the American South.  Dr. Chamberlain will additionally address how Georgia's residents, in turn, utilized a variety of strategies to gain economic security and improve their lives.  World War II left a legacy of energy production, military training, manufacturing, and improved educational opportunities in the American South.  Georgia emerged from the war as one of the South's most economically vibrant states, on the road to becoming a major corporate and manufacturing center.  

This program is presented by Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.
