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 a talk and exhibit, using original artifacts to tell the story of D-Day. Learn why it was the day that changed the course of WWII - and the day that ultimately changed the world. The program includes hands-on demonstration of the uniforms and equipment used during WWII. This is not just a history talk - and you will be sure to come away saying: “I didn’t know that!”

Great for high school students, history buffs, and anyone interested in the history of our nation and the world.

Admission is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Not recommended for very young children.  (Doors open at 6:00 pm)
