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 the above lectures open at 6:30 PM, and the lecture begins at 7:15 PM.
Military History Lecture Series
The Controversies in Military History special lecture series provides an educational opportunity for audiences to embrace controversies or historical perspectives that have occurred throughout the history of the military. The series' goal is to expand knowledge and perspective on topics challenging military thinkers.
Controversies Series event times may vary. Please check individual event announcements.
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.
