Here are pictures I took of some of the artifacts displayed in the "Florida Remembers World War II" exhibit at the Museum of Florida History located in the R.A. Gray Building in downtown Tallahassee.
Monday, December 8, 1941 edition of the Tampa Morning Tribune front page reporting the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese.
Citrus Bomber Fleet poster encouraging citizens involved in the citrus industry to buy war bonds with their extra money.
The dreaded telegram informing a Tallahassee mother that her son was killed in action at Iwo Jima. Notice the statement in the telegram: "To prevent possible aid to our enemies do not divulge the name of his ship or station". Click on the picture to enlarge and read it. As a mother, I can't even imagine how it must have felt to receive a telegram like this.
