This course will explore eight American wars — the Revolutionary War, the U.S.-Mexican War, the Civil War, the Spanish American War, WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War — remembered since. Each week we will read contemporary accounts of the war (political speeches, journalistic dispatches, novels, poems, CPI/OWI pamplets, photographs, etc...) and compare these to various kinds of historical accounts (historical monographs, memorials, museum exhibitions, documentaries, novels, poems, paintings, film, etc...). This will teach students both about the details of the war and the shifting ground on which war has been understood in the United States. Students will be required to participate in all class meetings, to write one six page paper, and to take a final exam.
