The Essential Eisenhower
New Generation Society of Lawrence (NGSL members only)

Tue., Apr. 5, 2011, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Location: Lawrence Public Library, 7th & Vermont

Dwight David Eisenhower never forgot his Kansas roots or the lessons he learned in his hometown of Abilene. How important was Eisenhower's Kansas heritage to the overall measure of this great American hero? This presentation focuses on the odyssey of a soldier, from a young man wondering where the railroad tracks behind his home led, to becoming an international statesman. From Kansas to West Point, to the Philippines, to Europe, Ike had exactly the right experience at the right place at the right time. Why was he so effective? Was it the smile or the intellect? Or, was it his Kansas heritage?

Presented by Daniel D. Holt, former director of the Dwight David Eisenhower Library and Museum in Abilene through the auspices of the Kansas Humanities Council.
