Welcome to the Arcadia Veterans History Project Site. What is the Arcadia Veterans History Project? It is a project created by students in Oliver Beckwith’s Honors US History class at Arcadia High School.
Drawing inspiration from the Ken Burns’ recent documentary, “The War,” students interviewed veterans from Arcadia and are now presenting their stories at the Arcadia History Museum.
In addition to the stories presented the interviews have been recorded and will be sent to the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. This will ensure that the stories of Arcadia veterans will be preserved for future generations.
Below you will find many stories from our veterans and actual transcripts from the interviews.
