Event Details

Ghost Army: The Combat Con Artists of World War II tells the true history of a secret U.S. Army unit of 1,100 troops that was set up in the final stages of World War II. They used a combination of visual, sonic and radio deception to convince the enemy of the presence of specific Army units that were, in fact, operating elsewhere. Local resident Mickey McKane was involved with the Ghost Army unit. His personal artwork, photographs, and documents will be featured in the exhibit. Visitors can expect to see an inflatable military piece, historical narrative text panels detailing unit operations, profiles and artwork by unit soldiers, archival photography, and uniforms from unit officers.
