Medical Lecture Hall
Ms. Cheri Molter
The North Carolina Civil War & Reconstruction History Center is sponsoring a presentation by retired Army Brigadier General Stephen R. Smith, who will speak on the topic “The Man Who Won a Battle, but Didn’t Lose the War: A Story of Leadership,” at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22 in the Medical Lecture Hall on the campus of Methodist University.
The History Department at Methodist University is hosting the event, which is free and open to the public.
Smith’s presentation will focus on U.S. Army Lt. Col. Joshua L. Chamberlain, a Union officer who fought at the Battle of Gettysburg. Though Chamberlain was more of an academic than a soldier, graduating from Bowdoin College in 1852 and serving on its faculty as Professor of Modern Languages from 1855-62, his actions commanding the 20th Maine Regimental Infantry at Gettysburg revealed that he possessed many of the leadership skills valued both in military command and in civilian leadership positions.
