96th Infantry Division

Organized in the final weeks of World War I, the 96th Division never joined the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) fighting the German Army on the Western Front. It would not be until the next world war that the 96th saw combat, this time battling the Japanese in the Pacific Theater on Leyte.

America’s Atomic Army of the 1950’s and the Pentomic Division

Throughout the twentieth century, the Army was in a state of constant transformation and reform driven by changing missions and technological advances. The development of nuclear weapons at the end of World War II resulted in it becoming virtually irrelevant in the 1950s. General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, running for President in 1952, promised to end the Korean War, which had devolved into a bloody stalemate.

Tools of War- Messenger Pigeons

The U.S. Army has a long history of employing animals in various missions. From the oxen-drawn sleds of the Knox Expedition dragging cannon from Fort Ticonderoga to Dorchester Heights outside of Boston in 1776, the Camel Corps experiment in the Southwest during the mid-nineteenth century, the Army’s long history with horse cavalry, to the use of dogs in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, animals and the Army have long been intertwined

Soldier- General Roscoe Robinson, Jr.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, on 11 October 1928, Robinson grew up in a close-knit family. His father, who had been a soldier in France in World War I, worked in a car wheel foundry and later managed an apartment complex.
