From the CORNFIELDS to

 the RICE PADDIES:

Oral Histories of Illinoisans from the Vietnam Era
 

This website is the outgrowth of Monmouth College's History of the Vietnam Era course taught by Dr. Stacy A. Cordery.  All of the interviews were conducted by students in the class.  It is our hope to contribute to the growing body of information on the Vietnam era by concentrating on the experiences of people from Illinois--those directly involved in or touched by the war, and those who considered themselves bystanders.  Such a geographical focus should help us understand how the Midwest responded to America's longest war, and provide a context for further study and reflection.
