Omaha: America’s Hometown is a collection of essays that describe historical events and people from Omaha and how these people affected the overall history and culture of the United States. From America’s victory in WWII to the formation of Hollywood, California as a media center, Omaha has played a part. There are dozens of different stories that cover many parts of American History but what they all have in common are their connection with Omaha, Nebraska.
Discover how Omaha won WWII. Learn how Rock and Roll was made possible due to events in Omaha. The Walt Disney Company started in Kansas City, Missouri but owes so much to the smaller city lying just three hours upstream. Las Vegas was just a dusty crossroads in the desert until Omaha offered its talent to the mix and today it is a world icon. Learn why the Omaha metro is the reason the video game console became ubiquitous in America! In the end, you will understand why Omaha IS America’s Hometown
