Care for veterans is a topic not only relevant to the understanding of the aftermath of war, and to the understanding of the role of government, but is a critical topic within the longer arc of disability history. In this lesson, students gather information through a variety of primary sources on the experiences of veterans from the War of Independence through today, and ask the question, ‘How has U.S. government care for veterans changed over time?’ Using what they have learned, they develop a proposal to today’s Veteran administration that outlines how veterans should be cared for today.  For this and other accessible lessons, see our Resource Library
