About the Event

This presentation examines two central figures in US history: General Robert E. Lee and General of the Army George C. Marshall, the “Architect of Victory” in WW2 and, arguably, the “Architect of Peace” in the immediate aftermath of the War. General Marshall graduated from the Virginia Military Institute in 1901 and no doubt studied General Lee’s military accomplishments and reputation. Even though Lee, a graduate of West Point, resigned his Commission in the US Army and led the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War, General Marshall admired and respected Lee. Rob Havers looks at the two men and compares their reputations today.
