At the beginning of America’s engagement in World War II, President Franklin Roosevelt called on the country to become “an arsenal of democracy” – major producers of war materiel to help defeat the Axis powers. This new film explores how the Windy City answered that call. Join us for a special screening with the documentary creators.
