Sun Lakes United Methodist Church, located at 9248 E Riggs Road, hosts monthly “Tuesday Nights Together,” a series of free programs.
Topics range from light and entertaining to serious and informative. A light meal is offered as a voluntary offering at 5:30 p.m. before the 6 p.m. program.
On October 11, the show will focus on a Civil War general who was a soldier and a diplomat.
To date, General Winfield Scott was America’s greatest soldier and diplomat.
Historians often paint a distorted picture of “Old Fuss and Feathers” due to its advanced age at the start of the Civil War, failing to acknowledge earlier accomplishments.
For much of the 19th century, Scott engineered and commanded a professional army that repeatedly proved its skill in warfare.
However, he won many of his most amazing victories without a fight and without shedding blood.
