If This Table Could Talk...it would say "THANK YOU!"
Thanks to our generous donors, the Eisenhower Foundation has raised $112,500 to help construct a display around Ike's historical D-Day Table in the Eisenhower Presidential Museum. It was around this table that the greatest military minds of the 20th Century gathered together to plot Hitler’s downfall and Europe's freedom from Nazi tyranny.
General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War II, led D-Day on June 6, 1944 - the largest military invasion in human history. In the midst of planning and overseeing the assault on Fortress Europe, this table, depicted in the rendering above, carried the weight of the world. This table represents thousands of impossible choices General Eisenhower was forced to make as he planned this invasion…choices that cost Americans their lives, but liberated an entire continent.
Thank you for your part in helping us reach this goal. We are still raising funds for the Eisenhower Presidential Museum exhibit renovation project and appreciate each and every gift made to this historic capital campaign, Dwight D. Eisenhower: A Legacy of Leadership. To learn more about Dwight D. Eisenhower: A Legacy of Leadership, please click here or call our office at 785-263-6771.
