Robert Krick to Deliver Banquet Speech at Stephen Dill Lee Seminar

Robert Krick will be the Banquet Speaker at the Stephen D. Lee seminar to be held on April 28, 2007, at the Key Bridge Marriott hotel in Arlington, Virginia. Robert Krick is an internationally respected scholar and considered by many as America’s greatest historian of the Army of Northern Virginia. Formerly the historian at Fredericksburg National Battle Field Park, Krick is in heavy demand as a lecturer on War Between the States topics.

The title of the banquet lecture is “Lee and the Historians in the Age of the Anti-Hero”. Krick
will tackle modern and false assumptions made by present day historians about Lee.

Krick joins such SD Lee scholars as Clyde Wilson, Thomas DiLorenzo, Don Livingston, John Dwyer, Tom Moore, and Kent Masterson Brown to make the SD Lee Institute in Arlington a can’t miss event.

Registration and hotel information for this event can be found at www.scv.org

"Anti-hero: principal character of a modern literary or dramatic work who lacks the attributes of the traditional protagonist or hero. The anti-hero's lack of courage, honesty, or grace, his weaknesses and confusion, often reflect modern man's ambivalence toward traditional moral and social virtues." - Columbia University Press Encyclopedia

DiLorenzo is an S. D. Lee scholar?

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

DiLorenzo, is, along with Mr. Krick and a number of others, listed as one of the faculty and scholars.

PS: To clarify, the institute is simply named in honor of S.D. Lee. DiLorenzo is one of the lecturers. This year's theme of the institute is: "General Robert E. Lee: Hero or Traitor?"
