Army ROTC has a long tradition at Indiana University starting 76 years prior to The National Defense Act of 1926 establishing the ROTC program. The first military instructor was Professor Jacob Ammen, a West Point Graduate and former professor there. In 1843 Ammen resigned from the faculty at Indiana and reentered the military and later became a Brigadier General during the Civil War. Upon Ammen’s departure, military instruction ended at Indiana until the Civil War ended when the civilian faculty routinely instructed tactics and drill.
