Civilian Control of the Military and American Democracy
FPRI’s Wachman Center, in association with the Cantigny First Division Foundation, is proud to be presenting their sixth weekend-long conference for teachers on subjects in military history. On April 2–3, we will be focusing on the history and philosophy of civil-military relations in the United States. As FPRI Senior Fellow Mackubin Owens writes in his new book on the subject, "The United States has been fortunate in that its military has successfully defended the Republic on the battlefield while avoiding threats to civilian control… But tensions have always existed…." The recent episode involving Gen. Stanely McChrystal is but the latest instance. FPRI and the Cantigny First Division Foundation are proud to feature the leading scholars and practitioners on the subject.
