Richard Haney, a professional historian, was only four years old when the telegram arrived at his family’s home in Janesville, WI. That moment, when Haney learned of his father’s death in the final months of fighting, changed his and his mother’s life forever. Richard’s story explores the impact of war on an American family. Richard illuminates life on the home front in small-town America and describes how profoundly the war changed such communities.
