Join us at the table and explore America's story in the words of those who lived it.

Register for "World War II On The Home Front"

May 21, 2022, 8:30 AM ET - 2:45 PM ET | Hosted by: Chelsea Train Depot (Chelsea, MI) | Discussion Leader: David F. Krugler

The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7th, 1941, thrust the United States into World War II and transformed the social and economic fabric of the nation. While soldiers were quickly trained and mobilized, factories repurposed to manufacture war materiel, and women worked those assembly lines. This seminar will explore how World War II affected America on the home front.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
