Leaving Vietnam: Building a New Life in Central Florida

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

Explore the impact of the Vietnam War in Orlando, through a new exhibit at the Orange County Regional History Center.

The History Center, in partnership with WUCF, recently unveiled the exhibit to coincide with the Ken Burns/Lynn Novick film, The Vietnam War. 

The retrospective exhibit uses oral histories to explore the war's impact on Central Florida.  Learn about local veterans and their front line experience.  Discover the roots of Central Florida's vietnamese community and its impact on leadership, local commerce and Orlando's food scene.

The exhibit runs through November 5 at the Orange County Regional History Center.
