The American Civil War spawned some of the most brilliant minds in military history, some of the biggest duds, and every type of commanding officer in between.  Much has been made of the stark contrasts in the abilities of Union Generals, but what of the Confederates? From Robert E. Lee to Louis Wigfall, from J.E.B. Stuart to Braxton Bragg, the Confederacy, too, had a wide spectrum of military capacity resulting in some generals being good, others bad, and a few downright ugly.  Join Development Officer Will Glasco as he compares and contrasts the leadership styles of various Confederate commanders and draws conclusions about “who are of stuff to make good generals.” Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm and the lecture will begin at 7:00 pm. Reservations are required. Contact Josie Butler at (855) 649-1861 x 203 or jbutler@moc.org for more information or to register. You can also register online.
