Award Winning Writer and Retired Army Veteran to Present at Wright Museum Lecture Series

On Tuesday, July 16 from 7 to 8 p.m., Dr. James K. Morningstar will discuss the legacy and war tactics of General George Patton Jr. and sign his book, “Patton’s Way: A Radical Theory of War,” as part of Wright Museum’s 2019 Lecture Series.

Sponsored by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney, the series takes place every Tuesday through the end of the museum’s season, which concludes Oct. 31. 

At the lecture, Morningstar (US Army LTC, Retired) will discuss common misconceptions regarding Patton’s approach to battle as a General Army Commander in 1944. 

“This is a chance to learn more about Patton’s successes in battle, as well as the criticism he received regarding his methods,” said museum Executive Director Mike Culver.

Morningstar is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and served 23 years on active duty in the U.S Army as an armor officer. His awards include the Legion of Merit and two bronze stars. 

“Patton’s Way: A Radical Theory of War” takes place from 7 to 8 p.m. at Wright Museum, 77 Center Street in Wolfeboro. Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by calling 603-569-1212.
