"American Wars" Gallery
Our national freedom has been guaranteed by the sacrifices of our fighting men. Here the visitor can see the armor of colonial militiamen and the muddy jungle fatigues of the Vietnam "grunt". The British drum surrendered at Saratoga, George Washington's pistols, field glasses used by General G.K. Warren at Gettysburg and the last message sent by George A. Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn are displayed. Also in this gallery is the Medal of Honor Wall, which commemorates those USMA graduates who have received our Nation's highest award.
