From World War II to Iraq: Charlotte's Veterans Look Back CPCC historian Gary Ritter screens selections from his documentary on Charlotte-area veterans from WWII to the present, followed by a discussion with veterans interviewed in the documentary. They'll describe their experiences at war and returning home, and how what happened was so different from what they expected. Our country's reactions to war have varied greatly from World War II to Iraq and Afghanistan. Share a fascinating and moving afternoon with local veterans who have seen war firsthand and survived attacks, ship explosions, and other disasters to share their stories with us. Ritter, a history teacher at CPCC, explores the past regularly as host of “Trail of History” on Central Piedmont Community College TV (Channel 17 on Time-Warner Cable).
When: Sunday, November 7, 3:00 pm
Where: The Duke Mansion, 400 Hermitage Road in Charlotte.
This event is free. Questions? Call 704/714-4400.
“From World War II to Iraq: Charlotte’s Veterans Look Back” is part of the Explore History! Series, presented by Levine Museum of the New South and The Duke Mansion.
