Abstract : This report presents the transcripts of oral history interviews conducted as part of an effort to document the construction and World War II-era operations of the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant (INAAP), Charlestown, Indiana. This project was undertaken as part of a larger Legacy Resource Program demonstration project to assist small installations and to aid in the completion of mitigation efforts set up in a 1993 Programmatic Agreement among the Army Materiel Command, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and Multiple State Historic Preservation Officers concerning a program to cease maintenance, excess, and dispose of particular properties. As part of the larger project to develop the national historic context of seven sample installations on a state and local level, the major focus of the project at INAAP was to document the impacts that the facility had on the state and local enviromnents.
