Webinar: Make History with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project
March 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
Make History with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project
Wednesday, March 8th
12:00pm Pacific / 3:00pm Eastern
The Library of Congress wants to hear from you! Join the Library’s Kerry Ward on March 8th to learn about how you can make history with the Veterans History Project.
Veterans and their supporters can learn how to participate and contribute their own oral history interview with photographs, letters, memoirs and other materials. Anyone interested in hearing these stories (family members, students, scholars, authors, history lovers, advocates and more) can search the archives or browse VHP’s Experiencing War online exhibits, which include themed collections of digitized stories, such as WASP: First in Flight, Women of Four Wars and Women at War.
With as little as 30 minutes, one can etch their own words in history, to enshrine their narrative in the Library of Congress, so that generations to come will learn from and possibly be inspired by their service. In doing so, we make our country stronger, just like Veterans always have.
Among the new Veterans History Project voices that arrive at the Library of Congress every week, will yours be one of them?
