The mission of the education department is to enhance students’ understanding of military history through the stories, sacrifices, and values of citizen-soldiers. We are dedicated to sharing topics with students around the American Revolution, American Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War.

  • The Medal of Honor

    The Medal of Honor is the most prestigious of all military awards and is awarded only to those who have performed the most outstanding acts of courage – acts that go “above and beyond the call of duty.” This medal is so important that the President of the United States themself presents it to the recipients! The Pritzker Military Museum & Library is pleased to join with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to explore our own Medal of Honor exhibit, the history of the medal, and stories of the brave men who earned this recognition.
