Lee and Grant

Presenter:

Duration: 
(01:04:51)

On November 1, 2007, William M. S. Rasmussen delivered a lecture in conjunction with exhibition Lee and Grant.

The two great opposing military commanders of the Civil War, Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant, towered over their contemporaries. In a major exhibition and book created in the 200th anniversary year of Lee’s birth, the museum explored the parallel lives of these two American heroes.

In an illustrated lecture, co-curator and co-author William M. S. Rasmussen examined Lee and Grant and their influence on our history.

At the time of this lecture, Dr. Rasmussen was the Lora M. Robins Curator at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture and curator of the Lee and Grant exhibition.
