Shared Sacrifice- Shared Success Exhibit

The exhibit uses artifacts, images, and text to explore the impact of World War II on the people of Milwaukee County.  It does not attempt to tell extraordinary stories, but rather demonstrates how average Milwaukeeans took up the war effort both on the battlefield and the home front, and how their actions affected the war and Milwaukee County.  Ultimately it was through shared sacrifice that Americans in general, and Milwaukeeans in particular, were able to share success.
