Nebraska Spirit: The North Platte Canteen

Thursday, June 21, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Nebraska History Museum


During World War 2, American soldiers from across the country rolled through North Platte, Nebraska on troop trains en route to Europe and the Pacific. Learn the story of the community that turned a railroad depot into a legend and touched the lives of more than six million soldiers from 1942 to 1946. Historian and folklorist Charlotte Endorf's show, dressed in platform girl attire, brings this miracle to life and is a salute to veterans.

Yearly memberships start at $32
