Event Details

During the Civil War, Congress voted to provide free land for civilian colleges that agreed to offer military instruction to their students. In 1916, this “land-grant” system of military training was transformed into the present-day Reserve Officers’ Training Corps. Otto Guenther explores how McDaniel College’s 100-year-old R.O.T.C. program has evolved and the contributions R.O.T.C. officers make to the United States Army.
