The Veterans History Project (VHP) collects and preserves the remembrances of American war veterans and civilian workers who supported them. This project was created by the United States Congress in 2000 and was signed into law by President William Jefferson Clinton on October 27, 2000.
In support of this effort, the Peabody Public Library regularly interviews veterans either at the library itself or at other designated locations.
These collections of first-hand accounts are made available to researchers and the general public, online via this website, at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., in the Indiana Room at the Peabody Public Library and via the Veterans History Project website. Please note that the hard copies in the Indiana Room cannot be checked out and are only accessible during library hours.
All Veterans History videos are now available on YouTube. View and subscribe to our oral history channel here.
