Military history is essential for understanding our nation’s past, but what happens when this history is misused? This program will examine the many ways that military history has been misused, distorted, or otherwise abused in our society, and to what ends. An expert panel of military historians will discuss the extent of this abuse, the danger of it, and what, if anything, can be done to address it.
