As our restoration team in Florida works on the P-47 Thunderbolt restoration, we have uncovered an amazing piece of history that we need your help with! As we removed the components of the turbosupercharger (turbocharger) section in the aft fuselage, we found the name of a "Rosie the Riveter" who likely helped construct the aircraft (P-47D-40-RA s/n 45-49167) in late 1944 at the Republic Aircraft factory in Evansville, IN. We think her name is "Sue Tharp" or "Sue Thorp" with a middle initial of "V"? We'd love to find her, if she is still with us, or her family. Is there anyone from the Evansville, IN area that might know or remember Sue? Any leads, email us at ahm@collingsfoundation.org! ... See MoreSee Less

Speaker Series: Korea – Triumph at Kapyong, Tragedy at Imjin and How Armor Made the Difference

March 16 @ 3:00 pm, ending 4:00 pm

Free with standard museum admission

Join the American Heritage Museum for a special presentation by Major Michael Manougian on the Korean War battles of Kapyong and the Imjin River and the role tanks played in both battles.

The Battles of Kapyong and the Imjin River occur concurrently in April of 1951 with the 27th and 29th British Commonwealth Brigades defeating Chinese Communist Forces against incredible odds, but the 29th Brigade at Imjin suffered considerably higher losses. At Kapyong, a company of American M4A3E8 Sherman tanks supported the 27th Brigade while a squadron of British Centurion tanks supported the 29th Brigade. This presentation will discuss why the American tank company with older WWII era tanks was able to make a decisive difference at Kapyong while the British squadron with arguably the best tank within NATO struggled to be as impactful at Imjin.

This presentation is part of standard museum admission for the day and does not require purchase of a separate ticket for the talk. Purchase museum admission online at this link. AHM members are admitted for free as part of their membership benefits.
