Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Military Education in the United States For gold the merchant plows the main, The farmer plows the manor; But glory is the soldier s prize, The soldier s wealth is honor. - Burns. Numerous volumes have been written on education in the United States, treating the subject historically, philosophically, pedagogically, and from other points of view. Most of these books have handled the topic from the standpoint of their respective authors in a more or less exhaustive manner, as far as that part of education which pertains to civil occupations, professions, and accomplishments is concerned, but none of them have even given a glimpse into those features which deal with military preparedness, national defense, and the thousand and one things necessary to make an educated military man, professional or amateur. A good illustration of this is contained in Doctor Andrew S. Draper s book, American Education, in which the entire space given to military education is contained in the following lines: The Military and Naval Academies are wholly subject to the Secretaries of War and Navy, and no distinct schoolman carries the light of his guild into the recesses of their affairs. A preface is no place for criticism. Let the reader draw his own conclusions. The writer has attempted in the accompanying pages to contribute a volume on a subject woefully neglected yet one which is very important, and it is hoped his efforts will serve in a small measure to bring the matter more prominently before the public. The more the public learns of our military system the more popular will the military service become with the masses. The average American citizen sadly lacks knowledge of the Army, its methods, its duties, and its educational system. No attempt will be made to charge this ignorance to any particular class of our citizens, for college graduates, educators, business men and professional men, with a few shining exceptions, have equally neglected to inform themselves on the workings of this very important institution of our Government.
