Why were Generals Lee and Jackson so successful working together as a fighting machine that consistently won despite often overwhelming odds against them? In The Great Partnership, professor Christian B. Keller discusses the unique relationship between Lee and Jackson, two leaders who chiseled a strategic path forward against the odds and almost triumphed. A book signing follows the program.
