The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County, North Dakota, have sponsored a new exhibit that attempts to illustrate the shift that the U.S. underwent following World War II. The population boom and changes in technology shaped the nation, as the Americans who used farm equipment and fed the growing number of citizens were an integral part of the expansion, according to the Fargo-Moorhead Forum.
The news source reported that the exhibit will show the period of change in the U.S., as "Boom" will outline the effect that it had on the country as a whole, and the role that North Dakota played in the transition.
"A tremendous amount of change occurred in Clay County," Mark Piehl, an archivist for the cultural society, told the Forum. "It really ushered Clay County into the modern era." He went on to note the importance of agriculture in shaping the future of America in the post-war era, as the exhibit features pictures of used John Deere tractors from the 1950s and their predecessors.
The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County features a variety of exhibits that show the area's history and the impact that North Dakota had on the country, according to the organization's website.
