The Civil Warriors Round Table will hold its next meeting of 2017 at 7PM on Wednesday, May 10th, at Weiler’s Deli in West Hills, CA. Michael Oddenino of the Pasadena CWRT presents an updated version of his talk from last year’s West Coast Civil War Conference, “Robert E. Lee – After the War.”
Robert E. Lee’s exploits during the Civil War are well known. What is not so well known is what Robert E. Lee did after the war. We will explore Lee’s life as a post-war civilian and his contributions to the country as well as the controversies that marked is post-war life. You are bound to learn something new.
Michael L. Oddenino grew up in Virginia surrounded by Revolutionary War and Civil War history. After majoring in history as an undergraduate at Virginia Tech where he studied Civil War history under Dr. James I. Robertson, Jr., (author of “Stonewall Jackson: The Man, The Soldier, The Legend” and other volumes as well as being a popular speaker on Civil War topics), Michael continued his studies and received his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law. He has been a practicing lawyer since 1978 while maintaining his primary affection for history. He is the Program Chair for the Pasadena CWRT and a regular speaker on Civil War topics.
