Dr. LaFantasie to appear at Franklin Civil War Round Table this Sunday

“The Mystery of Ulysses S. Grant,” June Franklin Civil War Round Table presentation

Called a butcher by some, a mastermind by others, and a consummate soldier by many more, Ulysses S. Grant possessed a deeply stoic demeanor, which led his contemporaries (and historians) to wonder what exactly made him tick.  The Franklin Civil War Round Table proudly presentsWesternKentuckyUniversity’s Dr. Glenn La Fantasie who will explore the wartime successes and failures that made the man, and ultimately shaped the course of the Civil War.

Dr. LaFantasie is a professor of Nineteenth-Century American History at WKU where he specializes in the Civil War and Reconstruction.  Director of the Center for the study of the Civil War in the West, he is also the author of Twilight at Little Round Top, Gettysburg Requiem: The Life and Lost Causes of Confederate Colonel William C. Oates and a forthcoming book on Grant and Lincoln, among other works.  LaFantasie earned his doctorate in American History at Brown University.

The Franklin Civil War Round Table meets at the Williamson Country Library, Sunday June 12th.  The event will begin at 3:00.
