L314 Spring 2019 The Grey Ghost in Peace and War
Thursdays, 2:15–3:40, May 9–May 16
Instructor: Jim Dunphy
OLLI Mason is located in the center of what was known as Mosby’s Confederacy—so, join us on a trip with the Grey Ghost through battles and raids in northern Virginia. But even more amazing than his service in the Civil War were the 50 years Mosby lived after that. From consul in Hong Kong, to attorney for the Southern Pacific railroad, to special investigator for the Department of Justice, to mentor to a young George S. Patton, Mosby’s life was an amazing one. After this class, you may just end up braking for a few local historical markers.
Jim Dunphy is a retired colonel in the US Air Force, and holds, among other degrees, a master’s in history.
