War Comes Home: The Legacy – September 11- December 23, 2020

“I’m coming home! I’m looking forward to seeing you again…but I’m in no hurry to see the expressions on your faces when you see me.” – Private Al Puntasecca, letter to his family, 1953.

 

For veterans, returning home from war can be both an exhilarating and challenging experience. Through private correspondence from almost every major conflict in U.S. history, War Comes Home offers insight into the thoughts and emotions of veterans and their families upon their homecoming. These intimate perspectives – from the Civil War era through the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq – reveal how war can shape a life, a family, and a community. This exhibition is a partnership with California Humanities and is a part of its War Comes Home initiative, which aims to raise awareness of and promote greater understanding of our veterans and explore the impact of war on our communities.
