Veterans History Project
Three generations at the National World War II Reuion on the
National Mall (May 2004)
The Veterans History
Project (VHP) of the American Folklife
Center collects and preserves the extraordinary wartime stories of ordinary
people. We encourage students, in grades 10 and above,
and youth groups to participate and take advantage of this wonderful
opportunity to make a permanent contribution to the historical record
of the nation.
Over 4000 digital collections from the Veterans History Project are now
available on the Web. They contain video and audio interviews, written
memoirs, photographs, letters, art work, and many other miscellaneous items.
The full online collection is keyword searchable and a special web-site, Experiencing
War, highlights compelling stories, based on various themes.
