Grant ++

The History Channel on Wednesday awarded the Wisconsin Maritime Museum a $9,034 "Save Our History" grant to partner with Manitowoc Lincoln High School and Kewaskum High School for a World War II oral history project.

"History Calls: Individuals Answer—Connecting Wisconsin Teens with the Greatest Generation" will help students learn about local World War II history by interviewing those who lived it — the submariners, shipyard workers, and family members who served on, built, or supported the 28 Manitowoc-built submarines.

The project will involve staff from the Wisconsin Maritime Museum and Digital Design Services in Green Bay with students and teachers from the two high schools.
