“The Home Front” Exhibit

Monday, January 15 - June 1
12:00 am

Our new exhibit, The Home Front, is up now!

Bridgeport played a key role in ensuring victory during the American Civil War, World War I, and World War II, providing major industrial and political aid to the war effort. Also key were contributions of everyday Bridgeport residents from community defense to the building of public gardens to the increased presence of women in the workforce- the vast social changes war brought to the city reflecting the transformation of the country as a whole. This exhibit features a series of vignettes showing how these major conflicts transformed Bridgeport into Connecticut’s industrial capital.
