Battle of the Bulge 70th Anniversary Commemoration at Eisenhower Presidential Library

January 16, 2015

BattleOfTheBulge2

Release From the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum:

ABILENE, Kan. – Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge-Kansas Chapter will commemorate the Battle of the Bulge 70th anniversary on Jan. 24 in partnership with the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home in Abilene. Four new exhibit supplements to World War II Remembered: Leaders, Battles & Heroes will be unveiled in the Museum.

A granite bench will be dedicated to Battle of the Bulge and other World War II veterans. The bench will be located in the center of the Eisenhower Presidential Library campus across from the Eisenhower statue. The public is invited to attend; pre-registration is required only for lunch.

The Battle of the Bulge, from Dec. 16, 1944, to Jan. 25, 1945, was the largest and bloodiest battle fought by the U.S. during WWII. The Battle of the Bulge was a German counteroffensive campaign launched in the dense Ardennes forest at the onset of winter meant to turn the tide in favor of the Axis. Ultimately, it served as a catalyst to ending the war in Europe and leading to the liberation of Nazi death camps.

Mark Collins, president of Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge-Kansas Chapter, said a large attendance is expected because of the location change from Manhattan to Abilene and the bench dedication ceremony.

The schedule (all open to the public):
■ 8:30 a.m., Registration at the Visitors Center. A group photograph of Battle of the Bulge veterans will be taken at 9:30 a.m., followed by photos of all WWII veterans. There is no charge for the photos.

■ 12:30 p.m., Buffet lunch including roast beef, turkey, side dishes and dessert. The meal is free to Battle of the Bulge veterans. (Meal reservations required by Jan. 21.)

2014 Brings More Researchers and New Treasures to Eisenhower Presidential Library

December 9, 2014

ABILENE, Kan. – A record 856 onsite researchers visited the
EiseIkeStatueAtPrezLibrarynhower Presidential Library archives in fiscal year 2014 (10/1/2013 to 9/30/2014), breaking a 50 year old mark by more than 50 visitors. The new record was set despite a nearly three week government shutdown. Library staff also served 2,800 offsite researchers.

A new accession from the family of Eisenhower’s Abilene friend Ruby Norman Lucier includes Ike’s own freshman and senior West Point yearbooks, which he gave to the then Ms. Norman. Another important new accession comes from the family of Eisenhower’s cousin Nettie Stover Jackson. The letter from Dwight Eisenhower’s mother Ida to Nettie includes new details on Ike’s birth.

Archival processing and declassification work has discovered documents relating to NATO operations, psychological strategy, intelligence and national security matters. Approximately 107 documents were declassified in full (totaling 511 pages) and an additional 191 documents were declassified in part (totaling 1,388 pages).
