|On Saturday, January 12, 2013, the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) will kick off its Second Annual Winter Program Series with a workshop entitled, “USAHEC’s Holdings Available to All: Students, Scholars, Researchers, Veterans, and Genealogists.” The workshop is open to the public and will be conducted from 10:00 to 11:30 A.M. Admission is free and registration is not required.
Conducting the workshop are Colonel Matthew Dawson, Director, U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, Mr. Thomas Hendrix, Director, U.S. Army Military History Institute, and Mr. Martin Andresen, long-time USAHEC volunteer. The workshop will highlight the USAHEC’s many and varied holdings and demonstrate how those holdings can be of value to anyone visiting the facilities or conducting on or offsite research.
This workshop is the first of three identified programs for the USAHEC Winter Program Series, running from January through April of 2013. Once a month, the USAHEC will present a program showcasing different aspects of public history and USAHEC operations. Other programs this year include a Re-enactor Recruitment Day in February and a presentation on military paper modeling in March. Check the USAHEC website for upcoming details about each program.
All Winter Program Series workshops and lectures are FREE to attend and open to the public. Parking is also free, and the Café Cumberland and USAHEC Museum store will be open during each event.
