From General to President to Me! 

What is effective leadership and what qualities make a good leader? Join us as we examine different leadership qualities that successfully transformed George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, and Dwight D. Eisenhower from wartime generals to US Presidents and how we can implement those qualities within our everyday lives.

Through the 2023 Presidential Primary Sources Project Program, we are excited to partner with the Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site and the Eisenhower Foundation for these sessions.
