Mark Wilson: Wartime Spirit

Wartime Spirit
Charlotte was smaller and quieter during World War II compared with the booming city and region we call home today. Historian Mark Wilson notes that patriotism ran high here, and that the war served as somewhat of a cultural equalizer in the Queen City. Note that Professor Wilson is speaking at Camp North End in Charlotte, an early Ford Motor Company assembly plant that served during the war as the Charlotte Quartermaster Depot, a major supply hub for military bases throughout the Southeast.
