Exhibit on the Science and History of Atomic Bombs
August 1 - August 31
In the month of August, The Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum will feature a special exhibit on the science and history of the atomic bombs used by the Allies to end the war. On August 6, 1945, the first atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Hiroshima. A second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9. What made these bombs so destructive, and how were they kept secret? Come and learn about the people, the places, the science and the aftermath of this significant event that ended WWII.
Due to public interest, the current exhibit on the role of women in WWII will be expanded and extended to August 31. Both of these exhibits include photographs, vintage film footage, artifacts and models.
