World War II
Through the Eyes of the Cape Fear:
Daily Life

A canteen. A bayonet. A letter to a sweetheart at home, thousands of miles away. A book of ration cards. The objects we use on a daily basis will tell future generations of what our life is like.

The items in this section offer us a better understanding of the day to day activities of Cape Fear area soldiers and civilians during World War II. These materials, from weapons to photographs to uniforms, tell the stories of the War in a unique and powerful way.
