From Love to War – Cecil County and WWII at Rising Sun Library, Oct. 18th

Guy Alchon, Associate Professor from the University of Delaware, will show us how World War II transformed Cecil County from the thriving marriage capital of the eastern seaboard to a bustling center of munitions factories. Attracted by plentiful jobs, thousands of women from surrounding states migrated to Cecil County. Learn how Cecil County evolved into an integral cog in the war machine as a result of this massive migration.
