The United States Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC), in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, is the U.S. Army's primary historical research facility. Formed in 1999, the centre consists of the Military History Institute (MHI), the Army Heritage Museum (AHM), the U.S. Army Conservation Center, and a visitor services staff. The Army Heritage and Education Center is part of the U.S. Army War College, but has its own large campus on Carlisle Barracks. The centre aims to preserve and interpret the heritage of the U.S. Army. It acquires, preserves, and makes publicly available Army-related library and archival materials. (Source: Wikipedia).

Ridgway Hall

Ridgway Hall opened to the public in 2004. Home of the Military History Institute, the hall holds over 11 million items (books, periodicals, manuscripts, photographs, military publications) on U.S. Army history, including the largest American Civil War photograph collection in the world. Along with a reading room for researchers, the hall also has several small exhibits that display artefacts and photographs from AHEC holdings. (Source: Wikipedia).

Army Heritage Trail

The Army Heritage Trail is a one mile (1.6km) walking path of outdoor exhibits and markers on various eras in U.S. Army history. Notable exhibits include a replica American Revolutionary War redoubt from the 1781 Siege of Yorktown, cabins built to resemble those of French and Indian War and American Civil War encampments, and several replica camp buildings from World War II. Another exhibit recreates a typical section of trenches from World War I, shell hole-marked no-man's land, and a corresponding German pillbox. The trail is open to the public year-round during daylight hours. (Source: Wikipedia).
