Administrative History

The United States War Department, or the War Office, was established in 1789. The department was originally responsible for the combined armed forces of the United States, though over time individual branches of the service were separated into their own departments. In 1947, with the formation of the Department of the Air Force, the department was renamed the Department of the Army.
