Please join the Eisenhower Institute for a book event in honor of the late General John S.D. Eisenhower, as we celebrate his recent book, American General: The Life and Times of William Tecumseh Sherman. In American General, Eisenhower paints a "surprising portrait of William Tecumseh Sherman, the Civil War general whose path of destruction cut the Confederacy in two, broke the will of the Southern population, and earned him a place in history as 'the first modern general.' Yet behind his reputation as a fierce warrior was a sympathetic man of complex character." In this remarkable reassessment of Sherman's life and career, Eisenhower takes readers "from Bull Run through Sherman's epic March to the Sea, offering up a fascinating narrative of a military genius whose influence helped preserve the Union - and forever changed war."

The Eisenhower Institute engages leaders and learners for the purpose of addressing critical issues in public policy and leadership development. Established· in honor of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Institute emphasizes education, research and leadership by awarding scholarships, internships and mentor opportunities on lssues of long-term importance to the United States.
