Until June 2014, the Sigal Museum — Northampton County Historical and Genealogical Society’s flagship facility and headquarters — is presenting a series of films which document some of the significant events related to World War II. A local company, Reda Productions, produced the films while working with the History Channel. This series is free and open to the public and will run continuously during museum hours.
In addition, military service members and veterans are invited to take a free tour of the museum on film days. Not to be overlooked is Liberty Called and Northampton County Answered exhibit, which just opened on 22 June. It features a display of 48 posters from a collection of more than 700 posters to showcase the art and persuasive text used to motivate civilians to support the efforts in both World Wars. It also features other artifacts which honor the valor and sacrifices made by both our military on the battlefields and our civilians on the home front.
