About the event

History has not been kind to General Ambrose Burnside.  Widely lampooned as an idiot and the worse Union general of the war, he has been relegated to the pages of history as an incompetent moron.  Is this the real Burnside?  Join award winning author and former National Park Ranger Rob Grandchamp for a new look at this misunderstood general.  This talk will separate the facts from the fiction of General Burnside.  This riveting lecture will present a new view of this misunderstood officer, a general who won more battles than he lost, a general who was a firm supporter of Emancipation, and a general who was a strategic planner.
