“With the completion of Camp Edwards in 1941, Cape Cod’s small, quiet towns and villages were thrust head first into the war effort.  While the war affected each and every corner of America, the Cape was particularly transformed and would never again return to its sleepy pre-war existence. Falmouth’s streets populated with soldiers, its beaches dotted by amphibious craft, and its post office filled with mail from the local boys who served.  Through a patchwork of posters, clothing, ephemera, artifacts, and oral histories from local Falmouth residents, this exhibition brings to life the town as it was in the early 1940s, in the midst of some of the most transformative years  of the 20th century.” – Falmouth Historical Society
