On July 20, 2019, I had the pleasure of giving a presentation on my new book Preparing for Disunion – West Point Commandants and the Training of Civil War Leaders at the Texas Civil War Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.
The following slide show will give you an idea of some of the many topics discussed in the book.
Please purchase a copy to learn more about the role of Commandants of Cadets in preparing Civil War leaders.
