At just 23 years old, Teddy Roosevelt published what came to be the landmark study of naval warfare in the War of 1812. Does this work stand the test of time? What do modern day historians think of this fascinating history by a President-to-be?
We will be hosting another outstanding lineup of speakers and panelists to answer these questions, including:
Dr. William Leeman, Associate Professor at Salve Regina University and author of The Long Road to Annapolis: The Founding of the Naval Academy and the Emerging American Republic and co-editor of the forthcoming Forging the Trident: Theodore Roosevelt and the United States Navy, published by the Naval Institute Press.
Dr. Kevin McCranie, the Philip A. Crowl Professor of Comparative Strategy at the U.S. Naval War College and author of Utmost Gallantry: The U.S. and Royal Navies at Sea in the War of 1812 and the forthcoming Mahan, Corbett, and the Foundations of Naval Strategic Thought.
Dr. Scott Mobley, Faculty Associate, Department of Political Science at University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of Progressives in Navy Blue.
