Wartime Leadership: An Interview with George Washington
September 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Step back in time for the moment, and join LTG (Ret.) James Dubik, USA, author of Just War Reconsidered: Strategy, Ethics, and Theory and Colonel George Washington (Daniel Cross – a full-time first-person interpreter) for a glimpse of Washington’s experience as a young officer “citizen-soldier” and what forged his character to become the icon we now all know him to be.
This interview between LTG Dubik and George Washington will confirm “. . . in new ways what we always have known about Washington: That he was a man of exceptional integrity, courage, and good judgement. It also reveals Washington as a man who remembered his youthful experiences and came to terms with them in such a way to enable him to move forward in the face of formidable difficulties to accomplish important new achievements for the nation to which he had so unalterably committed himself.” – Fred Anderson, George Washington Remembers: Reflections on the French and Indian War
“When we assumed the soldier, we did not lay aside the citizen.” – George Washington, Letter to the New York Provincial Congress, June 26, 1775
