I can remember when I was in high school I used to have to drag myself into my history class.
I took an advanced history class because that is what they gave me but I probably should have been in regular old history.
I found it extremely hard and also extremely boring. now that I’m grown and have a little history of my own under my belt, I seem to be more and more interested in history. That’s why I was so excited to be learning WWII history through the Submarine Museum in Muskegon Michigan. The USS silversides Submarine Museum in Muskegon offers the history buff a chance to see a real Gate 0 class World War II submarine. After the attack on Pearl Harbor and the US’s involvement in what would become known as World War II, Lake Michigan had a big role to play.At the time there were Passenger Steamers on the Great Lakes, in which the upper middle-class Americans got to enjoy a fabulous cruise around the Lakes. But that had to change because everything had to change. Those passenger ships became Aircraft carriers. The people of Muskegon and other areas around Lake Michigan Answered their call to duty when it was needed. My teenage self would be surprised to learn how much I enjoyed going all through the submarine in Muskegon and seeing all the various exhibits about World War and other information.At the Muskegon Museum of History and Science, I also enjoyed spending some time learning not only about the general past but especially about coming to the Lakes. People have been bringing their families to Muskegon for generations, and it was delightful to hear the stories of those different peoples who make up Muskegon’s diverse nature today.
