In 1777, General George Washington assigned Captain Isaac Coren to Carlisle Barracks in Pennsylvania (then known as Washingtonburg) with the task of setting up a school to teach “Laboratory Arts” to American Artillery Officers. In many ways, Captain Coren was the first instructor at the Army’s first school.
In honor of the contributions of Captain Coren in sustaining the war effort and educating Army Officers, we have named our Monthly Giving Society, The Coren Society.
The Coren Society honors those who have shown steadfast support for the Army Heritage Center Foundation (AHCF) and our mission to preserve the memories of the Soldiers that have served the United States through our partnership with the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC).
Members of the Society who give $10 or more per month will receive premiums outlined below.
