Oklahoma reveals war history through exhibition

October 27, 2012 by  

An exhibition is currently marking the United States 70th Anniversary of the entrance into the Second World War. During this time, there were attacks on Hawaii, the Philippines, Guam, and Wake Island taking place at the same time.

The ‘Oklahoma and the Day that will Live in Infamy’ exhibition is a fascinating exploration of the events that took place on that fateful day, as well as the many Oklahomans that lived through the devastation. One of the featured items in this exhibit is a Japanese flight suit, as well as naval uniforms.

There are also artifacts from the sunken USS Oklahoma and interviews with veterans who survived the aforementioned attacks. The exhibition also includes many personal letters and much more. Admission is free for active duty military and veterans and it is a great way for young people to learn about how America entered into World War II, as well as what part the country played in the conflict.

Flyer printing, brochure printing, and poster printing were probably used to advertise and promote this exhibition to the community and surrounding areas. Admission is included in the entrance free to the History Center.

The exhibition is running right now and continues up until December 8, open between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm at the Oklahoma History Center located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. For more detailed information, please visit the Oklahoma History Center’s website or call 405-522-0765 during normal business hours.
