“The only answer to a regime that wages total cold war is to wage total peace.”
President Eisenhower, Jan. 9, 1958


2024 Annual Theme


"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can..."
General Eisenhower, Jan 10, 1946 

After having seen the horrors of war firsthand, Eisenhower devoted his presidency to waging global peace. The 2024 programming will explore specific Eisenhower-era initiatives in seeking peace through prosperity, strength, and alliances. We will learn why the Eisenhower Administration became known for its eight years of peace and prosperity and helped to establish the post-war order that guided American policy for more than 60 years. 

These programs are all made possible courtesy of the Eisenhower Foundation with generous support from the Jeffcoat Memorial Foundation.
