Join us for a talk with Dr. David Gerleman, Professor at George Mason University and one of NSLM's John H. Daniels Fellows.  The discussion will focus on how Lincoln and Davis crafted their public image as commanders-in-chief and on the role of the horse in enhancing that persona.  Analysis of the wartime image of the commander-in-chief offers useful insights into the sectional social, economic, and cultural values of Civil War America.

$10 admission, free to NSLM members. RSVP to info@nationalsporting.org or (540) 687-6542 x4.
