The goal of the presentation is to showcase the impact Alabama’s feed sack manufacturers had during WWI & WWII. Bag manufacturers designed logos and art work to show patriotism. There was one plant in Alabama that had a government contract to supply sand bags for the war effort. The cotton sacks were used to ship commodities and such to troops in all theaters of WWII. Homemakers were encouraged to use the emptied sacks in various and creative ways.
