From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, April 16, 2007, area residents had an opportunity to learn a relatively little known story from America's history, the internment of German civilians in U.S. internment camps during World War II. BUS-eum 2, a mobile museum sponsored by TRACES, a St. Paul, Minn.-based organization, stopped in Marshall on its second visit to Missouri. More than 60,000 people in eight states have visited the exhibit in the past couple of years.
