Robert E. Lee is best-known for the military skill with which he held off the defeat of the break-away Southern Confederacy during the four years of the American Civil War. However, most analysis of his military career in the War has focused on his dignity, bearing, and personal conduct, rather than on the manner in which he exercised the command responsibilities of strategy, tactics, and operations/logistics. In his lecture "Robert E. Lee as Confederate Strategist, Tactician, and Logistician" on January 20, Dr. Allen C. Guelzo will focus on how assessments of Lee have clouded those questions, and open the questions themselves for examination in Lee's case.
UPDATE: Due to Temple University's recent announcement that classes will be exclusively held online from the start of the Spring 2022 semester until at least Friday, January 21, the Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy (CENFAD) has opted to make the upcoming event with Dr. Guelzo a Zoom-exclusive webinar rather than a hybrid event with in-person and Zoom attendance options.
