About the Presentation

To create an authentic moment in time for audiences, Tracy Lee White combines meticulous research, her own family history, local history, and stories of the real “Rosies” who helped win WWII. Using real items from the time including currency, ration books, government publications, news reels, music and clothing, she transports the audience back to 1943 and gives them a firsthand glimpse into war-time life. Meeting Rosie is truly a unique and memorable experience for the audience.

During the program, you'll also meet local "Rosie" Louise Cooper. She's “Lou” to her friends and family, and “Coop” to the gals building Liberty ships with her at the Brunswick, GA Shipyards. Come chew the fat with this “Rosie the Riveter” and learn how women are doing their part to help the Allies win the war. Learn about the latest rationing rules, women’s changing roles in society, and what Forsyth County is doing to help win the war and get our soldiers home!  You may even recognize a few local names!

You will also receive a "time travel packet" to help fully immerse you in 1943! (Please see information below.) Registrations for the program after Friday, March 19th will not receive their packets prior the program. Time travel packets will still be sent to all registrants.
