Badger Village: Our Prairie Home

Badger Village: Our Prairie Home

from 12.00

DVD

Is a fun, informative documentary about the community adjacent to the Badger Ordnance Works, which was the world's largest ammunition plant when it was built on 10,000 acres of Sauk County, Wisconsin land in 1943. This 69-minute DVD details the different eras of the colorful village, including the World War II, Korea and Vietnam production years, the post-war GI student housing era, and the creation of the Bluffview retirement village. Also featured is the rural Sauk County farm community that, with a skeptical yet helpful attitude, has watched the ammunition plant come and go. Stories by village residents are brought to life by entertaining, sometimes humorous re-enactment scenes that give viewers a feel for a time when local history mingled with international headlines.
