History

Evansville was not targeted in the Great Nuclear War, though looting and rioting destroyed much of the downtown areas. Recovery was slow, and thousands died in the years to follow.

Economy

After the GNW, a number of old facilities were sent back into production. Among these is a huge 45 acre shipyard complex constructed on the riverfront east of St. Joseph Avenue for the production of oceangoing LSTs (Landing Ship-Tanks). The Evansville Shipyard was the region's largest inland producer of LSTs. The Plymouth factory was re-converted into a plant which turned out live ammunition. In 1972 the city re-opened a factory adjacent to the airport north of the city for the manufacture of the P-47 Thunderbolt fighter aircraft, known as the P-47Ds. Evansville produces hundreds a year.

Evansville relies on selling it's military equipment to other nations, and frequently competes with Northern Indiana. The most commonly purchased goods are steel from Adyta and Central Pennsylvania, and fuel from Northern Ohio. Farming Equipment is shipped in from Northern Indiana along the "Dixie-Bee" (Highway 41).
