"Bullets, Bonds, and Butter: Wilton Responds to War, 1776-2006"

March 15 - September 14

Exhibition commemorates the contributions of both the soldiers and the townsfolk who have answered the call of war. While troops fought on the front lines, back at home, Wilton residents of all ages were engaged in supporting in ways both large and small. Rationing, writing letters to the troops, knitting socks and making bandages, buying war bonds, manufacturing diverse supplies, spotting airplanes from observation towers, collecting scrap, and more. This exhibit includes material from the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, and the war in Iraq.
