On April 26-27, 2014, FPRI held its 9th Annual Teaching Military History Weekend in conjunction with the First Division Museum at Cantigny and Carthage College of Kenosha, Wisconsin. As part of its nationally renowned Butcher History Institute, FPRI brought in leading scholars to address secondary school teachers from across the nation about American foreign policy, defense policy, military technology, societal-military relations, and uses of force from the post-Vietnam era up through today. Teachers were provided with free room and board, assistance designing curriculum, stipends for well-written lesson plans based on the weekend, partial travel reimbursement, a certificate of participation in a program offering 12 hours of instruction, and – where requested – college credit from Carthage College.
