Airdate: 08/03/2021 @ 3:00 pm CST
Ottens’ General John A. Rawlins: No Ordinary Man is the first major biography of Rawlins in over a century and traces his rise to assistant adjutant general and ultimately Grant’s secretary of war.
Ottens presents the portrait of a man who teamed with Grant, who submerged his needs and ambition in the service of Grant, and who at times served as the doubter who questioned whether Grant possessed the background to tackle the great responsibilities of the job. Scroll down to watch the program.
