Lectures

The USAHEC sponsors a monthly and a quarterly military history lecture series, as well as other smaller, individual lectures. Many of these are recorded, and are available on the USAHEC YouTube page.

Perspectives in Military History
The Perspectives in Military History monthly lecture series concentrates on providing a historical dimension to the exercise of generalship, strategic leadership, and the war fighting institutions of Landpower. Featured speakers include Army leaders, veterans, and military historians from around the world.

Brooks E. Kleber Memorial Readings in Military History
The Brooks E. Kleber Memorial Readings in Military History quarterly lecture series honors the memory of Dr. Brooks E. Kleber, former U.S. Army Assistant Chief of Military History. The series features authors lecturing on their recent works covering notable military history topics.

The doors for all lectures open at 6:30 PM, and the lecture begins at 7:15 PM.

Living History

The USAHEC hosts an annual timeline living history event, Army Heritage Days, which examines nearly every era of U.S. Army history. In addition to Army Heritage Days, the USAHEC also hosts many smaller, specialized events, including workshops, demonstrations, reenactments, and Veteran "meet and greets," both outside on the mile-long Army Heritage Trail and inside the Visitor and Education Center.
