On Thursday, June 6, 2019, the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Canton Historical Society hosts an interactive program, What They Carried on D-Day: A WWII History Presentation and Exhibit.  Doug Culver presents the history of D-Day, using original artifacts to tell the story of the day that changed the course of WWII – the day that ultimately changed the world. The program includes a presentation and interactive exhibit.  

This is not just an ordinary history talk – you will learn about D-Day through vivid stories about  ordinary men and their extraordinary achievements, made even more vivid by a first-hand view of the uniforms they wore, and the equipment and supplies they carried. You will gain a new understanding of WWII and the events of D-Day, and you will be sure to come away, saying, “I didn’t know that!”

Doug Culver has presented free WWII programs for the past 30 years for high school history students, veterans’ groups, museums, historical societies, and other organizations. He has consulted with countless individuals on the identification of military artifacts in family collections. For more information on Doug’s programs, visit: www.wwiiconsulting.com

This program is great for anyone interested in history, high school students, young adults, and those who want to learn more about how the events of WWII shaped our nation and the world as we know it today.  Admission is free and open to the public. Program times: 6:30-8:30 PM. Doors open at 6 PM. Seating is limited. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Not recommended for very young children.
