Military Tradition at the Academy

The display in this case pays tribute to this military tradition at the academy, and includes a sword used by the Dummer Guard, an on-campus military training unit, during the 1880’s. In addition, we have a Civil War letter from a graduate writing about seeing one of the early ironclad ships, the Keokuk, with Nehemiah Cleaveland in NY. We also have a photo of students in their military training garb and a scrapbook which includes an article about Benjamin Perley Poore’s “savages.”
