Historical society to present about the Cold War

Published 8:10 am Monday, July 24, 2017

At 2 p.m. on Thursday we will be hosting the Mower County Historical Society.

Executive Director John Haymond will be speaking on the Cold War.

The term “cold” is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides involved in the conflict, although there were major regional wars, known as proxy wars, supported by the two sides.

The Cold War split the temporary wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the Soviet Union and the United States as two superpowers with profound economic and political differences.
