I teach 8th grade U.S. History in Moore, Oklahoma. My students and I love your magazine. I have used it to spark discussion about various American Revolution and Civil War Battles. My students enjoy doing the Combat Decision Games. One in particular was “Charge at Bayonet Point” in the September 2005 issue. The students really enjoy coming up with their own solutions. Some of them may be way off base, but it is imagination and creativity in solving a problem that I want them to learn to use. I would love to see more articles or a section aimed at secondary education about military history. Kudos to your staff for the great work they do.

Dear Mr. Brown,


Thanks very much for your email to Armchair General magazine. We are always pleased to hear from readers and are especially pleased when the letters and emails come from educators. Over the years, we’ve received several lettes from teachers (both civilian and some in the military education system) who have reported using articles from Armchair General as part of their classroom programs.

Thanks for sharing your experience and thanks so much for reading Armchair General. Your idea of an article on secondary education about military history sounds interesting and could be something we’d want to take on in the future.

Best Wishes,

Jerry Morelock
