Long Island at War: Battle Front and Home Front
The Community Church of East Williston
Joshua Ruff, who has presented many programs to the NCHS in the past, returns to speak on the current exhibit "Long Island at War: Battle Front and Home Front" which he curated at the Long Island Museum at Stony Brook. This exhibition traces Long Island's involvement from the Revolutionary War through Iran and Afghanistan. His illustrated presentation will explore some of the subjects contained in the exhibition, including the history of the island's military forts and encampments, its 20th century role in industrial war production, and the participation of its residents in each major military conflict in American history. The Pearl Harbor anniversary is a fitting date for this program.
Light refreshments will be served after the program.
Guests are welcome to attend; invite your friends.
