A panel discussion focused on Civil War generals. The participants examined how each man ascended to the military rank and what separated each from their peers. The panel was moderated by General Wesley Clark (retired), editor of Palgrave’s Great General Series and each panelist authored a book in the series: Noah Andre Trudeau, Robert E. Lee; Donald Davis, Stonewall Jackson; Steven Woodworth, Sherman; and John Mosier, Grant. The panelists also responded to questions from members of the audience.

This program in the McGowan Theater was held in conjunction with the National Archives exhibition, “Discovering the Civil War,” marking the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. close
