President
Patrick Doyle donned his speaker's hat and presented a paper entitled
"Lee's Visitor" which refers to a visit to Robert E. Lee by Lieutenant Garnet
Wolseley of the British Army, just after the battle of Antietam.
Wolseley had an amazing career, seeing active service in Burma, Crimea, India,
China, Canada, Egypt, Cyprus, and South Africa. He rose through the ranks from
Ensign to Field Marshal and Commander in Chief.
