Memories of World War II at the Virginia Historical Society 

May 8 through August 1

While there's no such thing as good war, World War II had many reasons for being great. A conflict of immeasurable stakes and sacrifice, the battles between Allied and Axis forces tested the resolution of a generation of real-life heroes and villains. Among those capturing the moments as they unfolded were the journalists and correspondents of The Associated Press. Drawing from a collection of more than 100,000 images by staff photographers and photographers of the U.S. armed forces, the Virginia Historical Society presents “Memories of World War II,” an exhibit featuring 126 black- and-white pictures of the effort's front lines and restless domestic activity. Spanning the islands of the Pacific to the damaged cities of Europe, “Memories” opens Saturday, May 8, and is on display through Aug. 1. Free.
