An Adams Seminar is a full-day program consisting of a half-day indoor lecture and a half-day battlefield tour. Program begins at 9 a.m. in the Ford Education Center Classroom of the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. A boxed lunch is available at an additional charge of $12.00. Please indicate in the Comments Box below a preference of ham, roast beef, turkey, or vegitarian sandwich.
This program will attempt to answer the question “Why They Fought” first by reviewing the literature and many of the theories on human behavior in war and combat and second by focusing on several units and soldiers here at Gettysburg to test and demonstrate those theories. Fred brings in his own theories as a career Air Force officer, pilot and commander with significant teaching experience at the National War College in Washington D.C.
