"Sioux City and the Turmoil of 1968"

The upheaval of 1968 caused far-reaching changes in a medium sized Midwestern city of Sioux City, Iowa.

  • From the seizure of the U.S.S. Pueblo to the Tet Offensive, many local lives changed forever. We'll look at the direct link and remember the names.

  • The City's response to the national fear of 'urban unrest' would greatly impact Sioux City. The answer may not be apparent, but you might be surprised!

  • We'll see how the national political turmoil affected Siouxland residents in local schools, government, and businesses.

  • And a local response by workers at a local company would have a far reaching impact on Siouxland.

Join me as we look back on 1968 in Siouxland - part of the Sioux City Museum's History at High Noon series!

  Thursday, July 19th, Noon to 1 pm.
  Sioux City Museum, 4th and Nebraska.
