United States Army History

More than 200 years ago, on June 14, 1775, the U.S. Army was established by a resolution of the Continental Congress to coordinate the military efforts of the Thirteen Colonies in their struggle against the rule of Great Britain. Since its establishment, the U.S. Army has played a vital role in the growth and development of our nation. Soldiers have fought in more than 10 wars, from the American Revolution through the World Wars and Vietnam, to Iraq and Afghanistan.

To spotlight the Army's history, traditions, and service to the nation, the U.S. Government Printing Office offers for sale a number of publications designed to point out the achievements of America's Army.
