New Exhibit at the National WWII Museum - Expressions of America

I wanted to bring attention to a fantastic new multimedia exhibit at the National WWII Museum, which opened on Veterans Day. I attended a special pre-opening launch on November 10th for "invited guests only." It was beyond spectacular. And I urge everyone to reserve their tickets early before they sell out. Check their website for showtimes.


Expressions of America 
is a first-of-its-kind nighttime sound and light experience celebrating the power of individual Americans to impact the world around them during a time of monumental conflict. Available exclusively at The National WWII Museum in New Orleans starting on Veterans Day 2022, Expressions of America will immerse audiences in written words, songs, and personal reflections of the everyday men and women who served our country in every way imaginable during World War II. Generously presented by the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation, Expressions of America will uniquely combine the latest outdoor projection technology with wartime letters and oral histories from the Museum’s collection to allow audiences to experience the stories of the WWII generation like never before.  Check out the Teaser/Trailer below.

First Original Production for Youtube The Last Hours of Abraham Lincoln

I'm pleased to announce that we've begun a new series of Original Productions for Youtube. The Youtube platform has become the place to "stream and be seen" these days with over 2.6 billion active monthly users. It truly is the behemoth of the streaming world today. I had resisted creating original content for the platform for years but I have seen the view counts that my Janson Media distributed military history documentaries have generated and it is eye-opening. The views are in the millions.

So when you have a moment check out The Last Hours of Abraham Lincoln. More about the show: Few Americans alive today are unaware that our sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln, was assassinated while in office. It has been a part of American history textbooks for generations. But unanswered questions and little-known facts about his final hours remain, which are both revealing and disturbing. And it has been contended by forensic anthropologists that the President was dying months before the fatal shot, which ended his life.
