FULTON - The National Churchill Museum kicked off a new exhibit Friday dedicated to Americans who went through major events such as the Great Depression, World War II and the civil rights movement.

Area residents met outside the museum to celebrate the exhibit with help from the Callaway County Cruisers, who brought in vintage cars from the 1940s and 50s. The cars coincide with the exhibit, called Our Lives, Our Stories: America's Greatest Generation.

""When men and indeed women came home from the second world war, the world they returned to was a world very changed from that pre-war," said Executive Director Dr. Rob Havers. "And cars during that period are a real expression of a new vitality, a new ambition that was apparent in this country."

The exhibit runs until August 11th. Admission ranges from $6 for adults to free admission for children under age five.
