Thirty-one members and friends of the Chamberlain Civil War Round Table braved challenging January Maine weather conditions to enjoy long-time round table member and Ulysses S. Grant authority Noma Petroff present “Ulysses S. Grant: Vera Cruz to Vicksburg, A Watchful Quartermaster Learns Some Lessons.” Noma’s presentation focused on how lessons learned during the Mexican War heavily influenced the personalities and operational considerations employed during the Civil War. Supported by interesting and informative PowerPoint slides, Noma emphasized the development and implementation of joint army-navy operations, the challenges inherent in logistics and supply, the development and utilization of feint and diversion as a tool to gain tactical advantage, and related subjects.  Many thanks to Noma for putting together such an informative and well received presentation.
