Using the Lessons of Civil War Leaders in the Classroom

Recorded live April 8, 2021

Leadership is at the core of the United States Army. To be successful, leaders must inspire and influence others to accomplish the goal. In this virtual workshop, Museum Educators explore the importance of personal courage, humility, and trust in shaping a leader; and examine the influence of leadership on larger organizational success and failure. Museum Educators share online resources, artifact spotlights, Soldier stories, and primary sources and discuss teaching Civil War history through the lens of leadership.
