  • February 2018

    Many teachers are unaware I teach a US Military History Course and we have amazing opportunities to take cadets on staff rides to learn about US History.  This February I was able to take 6 cadets on a 4 day trip to Fort Concho and Fort Davis; two of the best preserved forts in Texas.  The cadets conducted research, gave presentations, submitted essays, and worked with UT Arlington graduate students on topics ranging from the History of Buffalo Soldiers, history of the forts in Texas, Texas History, and a visit to the McDonald Observatory.

     

    Below is the link of the video for this trip.
