Friday, September 8 | 12:00pm – 1:00pm | Speaker: Al Ottens

Nor are the rare communication skills Rawlins possessed that significantly impacted his relationship with Grant. Al Ottens, author of the award-winning biography, General John A. Rawlins: No Ordinary Man, will provide the details at this illustrated lecture.
