If you know of a veteran in Adams County who would like to participate in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project you can contact Linda at the Adams County Court House at 217.277.2123.
Volunteers will be collecting oral histories from veterans at the Court House and the Veterans’ Home on March 26th from 9 to 3. These interviews will be submitted to the Library of Congress to become part of the American Folklife Center in Washington, D.C.
Quincy University has conducted several of these interviews as an official partner of the Veterans History Project. Some of these interviews can be viewed here.
All veterans are encouraged to share their story and participate in this event.
