Maine History: How Did Maine Change from World War I Through World War II?
This is a rebroadcast of an earlier show (original air date July 29, 2020); no calls will be taken.
This show is part of our ongoing coverage of topics relating to Maine's bicentennial, and is the fourth in our series on the history of Maine.
The years from World War I through World War II led to lasting changes in Maine. We'll learn about how the efforts of those on the homefront altered Maine's landscape and industries. We'll also talk about notable Maine leaders of that era, and what impacts the wars and those who fought in them had on Maine's future.
