On the Homefront: August 1945

While military operations were going on all over the world, the people of La Crosse County were doing their part for the war effort. Local industries had switched from consumer goods to war material. With so many men in the armed forces, many jobs formerly performed by them were now done by women. Everyone had to deal with rationing of gasoline, rubber, food, and other essentials. The war touched almost every facet of life in some way or another.
