1942: A Remembrance

1 February 2018

As the Untied State became fully militarized after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Halifax County residents and natives of the local area soon found themselves among the more than three million men drafted into the United States armed forces in 1942. The South Boston – Halifax County Museum is proud to present this tribute to those who served in the U.S. Armed forces during that period of time and an examination of the numerous changes that a global war brought to Halifax County. On display are a number of artifacts from the North African campaign and the Pacific theater, military uniforms, and much more.
