Center of Military History (CMH)

The Center of Military History (CMH) provides the United States Army, from senior civilian and military leaders to individual soldiers, with an awareness of history. The purposes are to educate and inform. Other military services, policymakers, government agencies, and the public at large also benefit from the Center’s history program.

To those ends, CMH produces publications on the history of the United States Army for worldwide distribution, administers the Army’s far-ranging field history operations, and manages the Army’s museums both stateside and abroad. CMH publishes books, monographs, pamphlets, CD-ROMs, historical map posters, and the professional bulletin Army History. One of the more popular recent series is The U.S. Army Campaigns of the Civil War".
