PostNational Churchill Museum: Fulton, Missouri (John Eipper, USA, 08/02/15 9:00 am)
On July 27th, 2015, I had the opportunity to visit the excellent National Churchill Museum in Fulton, Missouri. With the exception of Gettysburg, no other small town in America hosted a more significant speech: Churchill's "Iron Curtain" address of March 5, 1946.
The museum contains an excellent exhibit on Churchill's life, and the circumstances that brought him to Fulton for that historic event. It also houses some of WC's paintings.
The centerpiece of the Memorial is St Mary Aldermanbury church, a 17th-century Christopher Wren construction. It was largely destroyed during the London Blitz. In the 1960s it was shipped, stone by stone, to Fulton, and painstakingly reassembled.
