Join us for a panel discussion and workshop with panelists Dr. Amelia Lyons, Elizabeth Klements, Marie Oury, Diana Dizon and Evan Murray along with UCF research librarians Mr. Richard Harrison and Mr. Rich Gause.
The Florida-France Soldier Stories project seeks to tell the stories of the Florida soldiers buried in the American Battle Monuments Commission cemeteries in France. Our goal is to honor and commemorate the brave individuals who gave their lives supporting the Allied forces, liberating France, and defeating Germany in the Second World War. Simultaneously, our goal is to teach the students who participate in this research project about the history of France and Florida during World War II, about the history of individual servicemen, and about how to implement historical research methods in their work.
