Students will examine the qualities of courage, character and leadership with particular emphasis on those qualities as exhibited on the battlefield by the students of the Virginia Military Institute during the 1864 Battle of New Market in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.  The course will include lectures on the campus of  V.M.I.  in Lexington, Virginia, assisted by V.M.I. faculty, close examination of the battlefield itself from the perspective of the V.M.I. Cadets, and personal application of lessons learned.

Additional highlights will include two full days in Washington, D.C. with two very “special events”, visit to the Bull Run battlefield (Manassas, Virginia),  Thomas Jefferson’s home Monticello (Charlottesville, Virginia), Robert E. Lee’s office (Lexington, Virginia), and Stonewall Jackson’s home (Lexington, Virginia).

Please note that this course is for males only. Students will receive a half credit on their transcript for completing this course.
