Petraeus Marszalek Colloquy

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of General William T. Sherman, whose partnership with General Ulysses S. Grant was instrumental to Union victory during the Civil War. That will be the theme of the Grant Monument Association’s next online colloquy.

On Thursday, November 19, at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT please join General David Petraeus and John Marszalek online as they discuss the relationship between Generals Grant and Sherman. Dr. Marszalek is the executive director and managing editor of the Ulysses S. Grant Association. His extensive scholarship on the Civil War includes annotated editions of the memoirs of General Grant and (forthcoming) of General Sherman.

You may register through Zoom at this link to watch the colloquy or watch the livestream (see below) from your computer or phone. The program will last about an hour and will include questions from the audience. You may submit your questions for the panelists prior to the event by email at

We hope you will join us on November 19 and forward this invitation to friends and especially students, many of whom are learning history from home.
