The Central PA Civil War Round Table will meet on Tuesday evening, July 2, at the PA Military Museum auditorium, 602 Boalsburg Pike, in Boalsburg beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Captain David Willmannn will speak on “Leadership at Gettysburg – Then and Now.”
150 years ago, events in the United States were turbulent, uncertain, nationalistic, and full of terror. July 1 – 3 marks the 150th anniversary of the great Battle of Gettysburg.
Captain Willmann is currently a Faculty Instructor for the Army War College in Carlisle and a professor for the Naval War College in Newport, RI.
His presentation will illustrate the strategic/operational environments that led up to the Battle of Gettysburg and the challenges and issues that needed to be under consideration by the senior officers of both of the Federal and Confederate armies.
Anyone who is interested in the Civil War or joining the Central PA Civil War Round Table is invited to attend.
