Springfield Armory: Re-Imagining the Country’s Weaponry. What if the weapons that were used to forge a nation and protect its borders throughout history were developed with Victorian era materials and Science Fiction ingenuity? How could that have changed the course of history?

This was the premise for an exhibit at the Springfield National Historic Site and Armory that was part of the city wide event “Steampunk Springfield: Re-Imagining an Industrial City.” Artist from throughout New England and beyond submitted works that explored this concept – the results were “revolutionary!”
