Inert Manikin Brings History To Life

A family weekend sees the crew at the Oregon Historical Society.

 The Oregon Historical Society's World War II exhibit was an excellent way to spend part of a Sunday afternoon.

Uniforms, an enigma machine, Captain America's shield (really), propaganda posters, and many other artifacts all provided good illustration to the different phases of the war.

Oregon's participation in Japanese internment did not go overlooked, which is an important issue that still reverberates today.

Extra fun -- if you are a WWII vet or live in Multnomah County you enter free of charge!
