Ethical Dilemmas in American Warfare
Date : Sat., April 18, 2015 to Sun., April 19, 2015 Category : Butcher History Institute
We are pleased to offer our 11th weekend-long conference for teachers on American military history. In this program, we offer diverse scholarly perspectives on ethical dilemmas and the reasoning behind them in American military history. Each topic will offer a crucial case study in understanding the tension between executive power and legislative prerogative, and also between security and liberty in a free society – issues that resonate with the dilemmas we face today.
Be sure to see: American Military History: A Resource for Teachers and Students, edited by Paul Herbert and Michael Noonan (FPRI and First Division Museum, 2013).
