The United States Army is the branch of the United States armed forces responsible for land-based military operations.

Congress officially created the United States Army on 3 June 1784 after the end of the war to replace the disbanded Continental Army.

Unique Audio Exhibit
We now have a most interesting audio display. Each side plays a different story. There is a storyboard on each side describing the person on the audio. There are pictures of the storyteller on a glass panel just above the storyboard. The visitor merely places the headphones on and pushes the “PLAY” button to hear some interesting stories out of the past.
Currently one side is excerpts from an interview done in the 1960’s with a inmate Billy McCune, whose sentence had been commuted from death to life. The other side is excerpts from a visit by this same interviewer, Danny Lyon, with McCune as an ex-mate some 25 years later.
