  • An Illustrated Look at Traditions of the United States Military Academy A to Z explains and illustrates some of the many traditions that tether today’s West Point Cadets to those graduates from more than a hundred years ago, the Long Gray Line. To bring some perspective, each tradition includes memories contributed from more than 200 West Pointers from as far back as the Class of 1843 and as recent as Class of 2026.

    The book is formatted somewhat like a dictionary, with “A is for Army”, “B is for Beast” and so on. Each section features text describing the tradition, an illustration, and then quotes from several West Pointers. These include two U.S. presidents (Grant – USMA 1843, and Eisenhower – USMA 1915), many general officers (including three former USMA Superintendents), congressmen, a past secretary of the Army, and many other distinguished graduates - more than 200 altogether.

    Each section also features a small, related graphic taken from the Cadet yearbook Howitzer, going as far back as 1897. Most graduates will still relate to most of them.
