VIRTUAL TOUR: Connecticut and WWII Manufacturing
Known as the “Provisions State” (a nickname going back to the Revolutionary War), Connecticut led the nation’s WWII production efforts, from gliders, to ball bearings and submarines. This exhibition was created in collaboration with Museum Studies students in Central Connecticut State University’s Public History Program.
