October 22, 2015 - How General Porter Won the Last Battle of the Civil War in 1886

7:30 pm (Berwick Academy)

General Fitz-John Porter was blamed for the bloody Union defeat at Second Bull Run for over 20 years.  Then in 1886, President Grover Cleveland restored him to the Army at his former rank.  Amateur historian (and retired lawyer) Wayne Soini tracks the successful post-war campaign of Porter's belated-but-key supporters, U.S. General Grant and attorney Joseph Choate, in the quest for his vindication.
