Presentation to talk about the Civil War

Published 6:15 pm Saturday, April 22, 2017

Join us at 2 p.m. on Thursday for “Leadership in the Civil War,” a piece of history through the eyes of Mower County Historical Society Executive Director John A. Haymond, presented at the Mower County Senior Center.

President Abraham Lincoln realized early in the summer of 1863 that he had two big challenges: reestablishing control over the Army and recapturing public opinion. With this realization, Lincoln made some bold choices. First, he got rid of some old beliefs that no longer worked. And second, he started leading in a completely new way.

In retrospect we can see how his bold choices in the summer of 1863 helped him become one of the greatest leaders the U.S. has ever known.
