The Pelican State Goes to War Symposium: Uniquely Louisiana

Join us for thoughtful dialogue from noted historians, scholars, and veterans. During the course of the day, learn about Louisiana during the war years and the legacy of its citizens’ participation today. Panelists will examine Louisiana’s sense of place and its people’s adaptability during the war years. Morning presentations will examine Louisiana’s sense of place and its people’s resilient adaptability in wartime. The afternoon explores World War II’s lasting impact on the Pelican State from the immediate postwar years to today.

Presented by The Alta and John Franks Foundation.
