Curator Conversations- The Admirals Wept: Billy Mitchell and the Atlantic Bombing Tests of 1921

July 26, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


In the summer of 1921, a group of fliers led by Wisconsin’s Billy Mitchell proved in a series of tests that warships could be sunk solely from the air. This development influenced many developments up to and including World War II and beyond. WVM’s Chris Kolakowski and Kevin Hampton will explore the tests, their impact, and their legacies.

This event is free and suitable for all ages.

Program funding made possible by the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Foundation through the generous support of Generac Power Systems.
