The Michael J. Colligan History Project will mark the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor and honor U.S. veterans of World War II with a unique commemorative event on December 7, 2016.

The event includes a ceremonial commemoration and musical program featuring patriotic and World War Two-era songs. City of Hamilton historian Jim Blount will provide introductory remarks.  An exhibition of World War Two artifacts, military uniforms, and historic posters will be on display, loaned from local collections. Attendees are invited to share World War Two documents and photographs at the event. These can be scanned electronically and will be added to a digital archive on our website.

This collaborative project is supported by the President’s Office of Miami University, Miami University Hamilton, the Miami University Department of Humanities and Creative Arts, and Miami University Regionals Center for Veterans Services.
