Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy
May 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
The USS Silversides Submarine Museum Lecture Series “Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy,” concludes in May with one last lecture, May 6 at 6:00pm. “The Cost of Manufacturing for WWII,” presented by George Maniates is the Grand Finale of this winter’s lecture series which features a temporary exhibit from The National WWII Museum of New Orleans entitled Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy. This exhibit tells the inspiring story of the Home Front effort that produced tanks, planes, ships and guns with staggering speed and unparalleled energy. It was a surge in productivity that not only brought the country out of depression, but also created mighty military forces, supplied the Allies abroad, and opened new doors of opportunity and social change. The exhibit will run from May 20-August 5, 2019. The cost for the lecture is $5.00 per person or free with your USS Silversides Submarine Museum membership. For more information call 231-755-1230.
Note: For the month of May, USS Silversides Submarine Museum members can show their cards at the Lakeshore Museum Center and enjoy free general admission to their sites, including the Main Museum as well as the Hackley & Hume homes, the Firebarn Museum and the Scolnik House of the Depression Era. Muskegon has so many wonderful things to offer and they are excited to partner with the Lakeshore Museum Center to showcase a few of them with their members.
