This uniform was worn by a German prisoner of war (POW) in North Carolina during World War II. Due to the relative secrecy of Army’s POW program, few civilians knew about the thousands of POWs held in the Tar Heel state. North Carolina had two major POW base camps, Camp Butner and Fort Bragg, which each held between 2,000 and 3,000 POWs. They worked on military bases, local farms, and in agricultural industries when civilian labor was unavailable. #TextileTuesday
