US Military History: Archives

This guide is for use with military history courses taught at University of Wyoming, specifically HIST 2020: US Military History.


Archives are a fantastic source of information for research into military history, especially those that contain first-person narratives or other primary sources. UW Libraries has many digital databases that are linked to archives. More importantly, the American Heritage Center (AHC) at UW holds many primary sources of military history from Wyoming veterans.
