Oct. 11 – Veterans: Hear about a Civil War general who was a soldier and a diplomat.

Veterans Day will soon be here, and it is fitting to pay tribute to an almost forgotten American warrior named Winfield Scott. In his day, General Scott was America’s preeminent soldier and diplomat. Historians often paint a distorted picture of “Old Fuss and Feathers” due to his advanced age at the onset of the Civil War, failing to recognize earlier accomplishments. Over much of the 19th century, Scott designed and commanded a professional army that proved over and over again his war-making skills; however, Winfield Scott won many of his most stunning victories short of fighting and without shedding blood.
