Join us on Mondays at 1 PM in the Robert & Ann Hachtel Theater at the Museum for the following PBS Delta College Media historical documentation:

WHEN: September 25 at 1 PM: The Korean War – Voices from the 38th Parallel
They call it "The Forgotten War," but those who served will never forget their experiences. This documentary features 23 Michigan residents whose lives were touched by the Korean War telling their stories in their own words. They talk about the Pusan Perimeter, Inchon Landing, the Chosin Reservoir, and Hearbreak Ridge, along with their reflections on the war, over 60 years later.

WHEN: October 2 at 1 PM: Settling In: Immigrants & Cultures That Built Mid-Michigan
Many diverse ethnic groups were drawn to the Great Lakes Bay Region as developing frontiers in Michigan paved the way for agricultural and industrial growth. As each wave of immigrant settlement explored new work opportunities, faced labor challenges, and developed neighborhoods, towns and cities, they brought their own unique cultural perspectives and traditions to the Wolverine State.

Examine how different ancestral groups shaped Mid-Michigan and explore how their local communities survived and thrived amidst the challenges of starting a new life in a strange and unfamiliar land. These ethnic communities sought religious freedoms, impacted the state’s economy, influenced labor laws, and contributed to Michigan’s history and identity.

WHEN: October 9 at 1 PM: Sailing Into the Past: Travels Aboard El Galeón & The Tall Ship Sailing Into the Past follows El Galeón Andalucia, a replica of a 16th century Spanish galleon, as it sails through the Great Lakes to the 2016 Tall Ship Celebration in Bay City. We speak with crew members on the ship and take a behind-the-scenes look at the Tall Ship Celebration.

WHEN: October 16 at 1 PM: Vietnam Voices: Mid-Michigan Remembers the Vietnam War
Delta College Public Media brings together 32 local voices to tell their stories and reflect on the volatile Vietnam War era. Veterans, anti-war protesters, family members, and more tell their personal stories of this controversial time in American history. Veterans share their experiences from the war and we explore the anti-war movement, the impact of television news coverage of the war, PTSD, and more from this pivotal point in American history.
