The Freeman Army Airfield Museum

The Freeman Army Airfield was once a World War II training base for the Army Air Corps, the predecessor to the US Air Force. From1942 to 1946 this was one of the many sites across the country where pilots learned how to fly the Army's dual engine bombers. The base was also the site of the Freeman Army Airfield Mutiny, which signaled the beginning of the end of segregation in the US armed forces.
