One section is on Zoom and the other is in-person.
Each week we will explore a different military commander. We will cover the current history of their times, do a bio on the commander, and then set the stage for his most brilliant though not necessarily his most consequential victory. The commanders and their battles will be as follows: 1. Alexander The Great: Battle of Gaugamela 2. Julius Caesar: Battle of Alesia 3. Lord Horatio Nelson: Battle of Trafalgar 4. Gen George Washington: Battle of Yorktown 5. Gen Ulysses S. Grant: Capture of Vicksburg 6. Gen Andrew Jackson Battle of New Orleans While it is not a prerequisite for the class, it is anticipated that students will be quite familiar with one or more of these commanders and their battles and bring their insight into the discussion. All students will be encouraged to do some research on their own before class meets on the respective commanders.
