war auditorium

The 75-year-old mural at the auditorium contains many mysteries. It tells the story of the settling of the Midwest, the legacy of the U.S.-Indian Wars, and those that followed: The Civil, Spanish-American and World War I. It celebrates the nation’s constitutional rights, from the right of assembly and the press to the end of slavery. It also contains airplanes that look like modern-day stealth bombers.
