"Eisenhower's Farewell Address, "National Archives and Records Administration, 35810768.


Gather with a small group of teachers from around the country for three days immersed in discussion and exploration of a single topic in American history. Multi-Day Seminars are a free opportunity for teachers hosted near an important historical site. Teachers will prepare ahead of time for seminars by reading selected historical documents in the provided course packet. Once the seminar begins, the discussion leader guides a peer-to-peer, text-based conversation among all participants. Meals, materials, double-occupancy rooms, and historical site visits are 100% covered by Teaching American History. At the end of each course, every teacher receives a letter of participation for fifteen contact hours of continuing education and a stipend of $600 to help defray travel costs.

When Dwight D. Eisenhower became U.S. President at the height of the Cold War, he possessed vast experience in foreign affairs. Drawing on leadership skills developed during and after World War II, Eisenhower managed U.S. foreign policy with caution and skill. Determined to prevent the expansion of international and domestic Communism, Eisenhower also feared that Cold War tensions might lead to global catastrophe. Eisenhower attempted to protect American “blood and treasure,” while simultaneously projecting an image of strength and determination. Despite Eisenhower’s many successes, heavy reliance on U.S. nuclear forces, covert operations, alliance systems, and propaganda activities occasionally worked counter to U.S. interests and increased international instability.
