Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy COMING SOON
Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy
November 7, 2014 – May 31, 2015
On view in the Joe W. and D. D. Brown Foundation Special Exhibit Gallery


Ultimate victory in World War II was largely made possible by a mighty American production effort that transformed the economic and industrial assets of the United States’ military—an effort that created what President Franklin D. Roosevelt called the “Arsenal of Democracy.”

Manufacturing Victory examines how the unprecedented drive of great leaders and industry brought America out of the Great Depression and forged a united national effort on the Home Front that changed the tools of production, opened new doors of opportunity to America’s citizens, and turned the nation into a global superpower.
