About the Book
This work is a memoir and history looking at a small rural Indiana town during the middle of the 20th century – from the ending days of the Great Depression, through World War II, the Korean Conflict and into the “Baby Boom” era. It examines the overall community and one family. The impact of the construction of Morse Dam on the town in the 1950’s and thereafter is analyzed depth. The “Headlines” chapter highlights significant events affecting the community. The work adds to Indiana history and recognizes the significant number of youths participating in all military conflicts during that period. The Appendix section provides information on Cicero veterans serving during the mid-century period.
