Fort Ticonderoga Museum (Ticonderoga, NY 12883-0390)
Richard Strum (Project Director: March 2020 to present)
For the Common Defense: Subjects, Citizens, and America's Military Origins, 1609-1815

A two-week institute for 25 middle and high school teachers on the origins and development of American military institutions.

The institute will focus on the evolution of military institutions in America from the establishment of French and English colonies in North America through the conclusion of the War of 1812. In politics, law, and the military Americans of the founding era relied on their own experience and examples from abroad. From the impact of the English Civil War on attitudes towards standing armies to perceptions of who should, and could, serve in the military Americans crafted military institutions as unique as their civic ones. The wars of the early modern period in North America brought together a wide range of peoples and cultures from Native American Communities to Europe and Africa that shaped the unique system of national defense developed in the United States.
