Our speaker Glenn LeBoeuf will chronicle the reasons for Confederate failure at Gettysburg. Glenn's analytical approach utilizes the always popular format of identifying might-have-beens, turning points, missed opportunities, strategic and tactical errors, leadership deficiencies and poor combat execution. Critical command decisions by leading Confederate generals will be evaluated, including those of Lee, Hill, Longstreet, Ewell, Heth, Stuart and others. Glenn's presentation is thought provoking and is sure to ignite a spirited Q & A session!
Glenn LeBoeuf is a well respected speaker on a variety of Civil War military topics and on Lincoln's life, political philosophy and moral authority. He was a featured speaker at the prestigious Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College and is a member of the Abraham Lincoln Association. He has been active in Civil War reenacting and served as a coordinator for the largest reenactment ever held, with more than 23,000 participants at Gettysburg.
Glenn is a Senior Vice President, Financial Advisor and Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor with Freedom Capital Management in New Jersey.
Our Roundtable's flexible schedule allows us to take advantage of Glenn's availability and hold our May meeting in late April!
