Experiencing War, Stories from the Veterans' History Project


The subjects of these pictures now seem so old to us. They wear older cuts of clothes and sport odd hairstyles; yet these were the people that gave of themselves during wartime. The Library of Congress has gathered multiple stories from veterans of American Wars, including World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and even the First Iraq War. Photos, audio interviews, and manuscripts accompany most of the veterans' stories. This is an excellent site for classroom use, especially with units designed to explore past generations.
