Fort Caspar Museum Provides Insight With Letters From Home
Our friends at Fort Caspar Museum invite you to discover more of our shared heritage with an informative and introspective presentation and display this April and May.
On April 6th, the museum, along with Casper College, presents "Letters From Home." Join Reveille 3 as they provide a glimpse into the early 1940's and the "era of war bonds, rations, scrap drives, swing music, and GI's." "Letters From Home" tells the story of three ladies living during the course of World War II and is "brought to life through the music made popular by the Andrews Sisters and woven with letters inspired by the actual letters written during this time in our history." Songs include: Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree, Rum and Coca Cola, Apple Blossom Time, and many more.
"Letters From Home" provides a wonderful narrative and introduction to Fort Caspar's next exhibit. "Our Lives, Our Stories" will be on display at Fort Caspar from April 6th through May 28th, 2012, and chronicles these very important moments in the lives of everyday Americans. The '40's come alive Friday, April 6th at Casper College's Aley Fine Arts Center in Durham Hall. Showtime is 6:30 and it's free.
The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday in April. Hours are 8 a.m to 5 p.m. Admission is $1.50 for adults, $1.00 for kids, and free for those 12 and under. During May, the museum will be open daily with admissions going to $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for kids. For more information, please call 307-235-8462, or visit www.fortcasparwyoming.com.
