2019 Eisenhower Society Birthday Commemoration
On Saturday, October 12, 2019 the Society held it’s 50th commemoration of Dwight D. Eisenhower’s birth. At 11:15 a.m. a short program, scholarship presentations, and a wreath laying at the Eisenhower statue were held at the Eisenhower House, President Eisenhower’s retirement office at Gettysburg College.
Following the wreath laying, the Eisenhower Society enjoyed a fabulous buffet luncheon at the Historic Dobbin House, 89 Steinwehr Avenue, Gettysburg. Our luncheon speaker was Dr. Michael S. Neiburg, Professor of History and Chair of War Studies at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. His published work specializes on the First and Second World Wars in global context. The Wall Street Journal named his Dance of the Furies: Europe and the Outbreak of World War I (Harvard University Press) one of the five best books ever written about that war. In October 2016 Oxford University Press published his Path to War, a history of American responses to the Great War in Europe, 1914-1917, and in July 2017 Oxford published his Concise History of the Treaty of Versailles. In 2018 he was awarded the Médaille d’Or du Rayonnement Culturel from La Renaissance Française, an organization founded by French President Raymond Poincaré in 1915 to keep French culture alive during the First World War. He is now at work on a book on US relations with Vichy France, 1940-1942.
Dr. Neiburg’s talk was entitled After the Beaches: Eisenhower and the Road to Paris. He covered the controversies, most of them forgotten today, over America’s, and specifically Eisenhower’s, role in the liberation of Paris.
