Welcome to the Living History website created by students at Piedmont Technical College!  Here you will find information that has been collected from the firsthand accounts of individuals who lived through two momentous events in American history:  World War II and the Civil Rights movement.  Students enrolled in History 202 interviewed family members, neighbors, co-workers, and other acquaintances.  They then compiled these accounts into what you will find on this site.  We hope you will take some time to read these stories and learn from those who have gone before us, just as we have.
