A Return to Peace

WHAT'S OLD IS NEW:

Revisiting The Department of Peace

There has always been a congressional debate and discussion about creating a cabinet-level Department of Peace. In 1793, Benjamin Rush published "A plan of a Peace-Office for the United States." It was designed to have an equal footing with the Department of War. It's goal & objective was to promote and preserve American peace both domestically and abroad.
