Winston Churchill never visited New Orleans, but if he had he certainly would have visited the National World War II Museum. There is no more fitting memorial to all the millions of uniformed and civilian men and women who heroically led the fight for victory 70 years ago.
The Churchill Centre and our affiliate, The Churchill Society of New Orleans, are pleased and proud to partner with the Museum to bring you the 31st International Churchill Conference in 2014, during the 70th anniversary year of Operation Overlord, the D-Day invasion of Europe on June 6, 1944. The local conference committee has assembled an impressive line-up of speakers who will address the theme of the conference, Winston Churchill: Fighting and Writing, exploring both his military and his literary accomplishments.
All registrations include admission to the magnificent National World War II Museum and you will have ample opportunities to explore its vast and impressive collection. At the closing night's Black Tie Gala Dinner, you will be seated underneath a B-17 and other aircraft from World War II in the Museum's Freedom Pavilion: the Boeing Center.
For early arrivals, your local Committee has planned a special reception on Wednesday evening in the beautiful Garden District. A walking tour of some of the Garden District is included for this evening. A walking tour of the French Quarter will be offered on Thursday, and a plantations tour has been arranged for Sunday after the conference.
You won't want to miss this opportunity to visit this world class museum and city, and to indulge your love of and interest in Winston Churchill.
