General Order #15
23 July 2010
Today is the 125th anniversary of the death of a great leader. Ulysses S Grant, President of the United States and Commanding General of the Union Army, died at his home in Mt McGregor, NY, 125 years ago today.
General Grant was a leader not only in his time, but in ours, with his leadership teachings still being looked at today.
As the sesquicentennial of the Civil War approaches, we need to take the time to remember leaders that were instrumental in strengthening our Country into the America that is now truly the United States.
Brothers are encouraged to include stories of our Civil War era leaders in talks throughout the celebration of the sesquicentennial.
Ordered this 23rd Day of July, 2010.
