This role-playing game for the classroom focuses on the turmoil surrounding the planned exhibit of the Enola Gay aircraft in 1995 at the National Air and Space Museum. The materials help students engage in debates over who controls history, and the role museums and/or the government should play in shaping culture and identity. Materials include a game book for students, character roles from the period, an Instructor's Manual, and sources to encourage research on World War II and the 1990s culture wars. The LibGuide includes primary and secondary resources for reference.
