American Soldiers in American Wars: History and Memory
American Soldiers in American Wars: History and Memory provides teachers with hands-on experience and introduces an engaging model for teaching the history of U.S. military conflicts. The model links scholarly debates regarding the causes of American wars, primary source analysis of the experiences of diverse groups of American military personnel, and investigations into both veterans' personal memories of their service and the politicized nature of Americans' collective memories of war. Sessions led by participating Institute Faculty and the Choices Program's staff will help teachers deepen their knowledge about these conflicts and adapt the model for use in their classrooms.
