The origins and traditions of the United States Army go back decades before its official creation at the beginning of the American Revolution in 1775. The National Museum of the US Army will host the first of its annual Fall symposia from October 18-22, this year focusing on the early roots of the Army’s history of “Colonial Conflicts.” The virtual event will include four historian presentations on early American warfare, a look at some of the Museum’s rare colonial era artifacts, and programs for students and educators.
Presenters include Glenn Williams on Lord Dunmore's War, 1774; Timothy Shannon on the Native American Way of War; Michael McConnell on Coalition Warfare and the Forbes Campaign, 1758; and Marjoleine Kars on North Carolina’s War of the Regulation, 1766-71.
This virtual program is free and open to the public.
