A piece written by Pennsylvania Military College alumnus Bill Speer ’72 for the current issue of North & South (Vol. 12, number 6), the official magazine of the Civil War Society, examines the life and tragic death of Henry Clay Robinett. Speer’s research on Robinett, an 1860 graduate of Delaware Military College (a predecessor to Pennsylvania Military College and Widener), was featured in the January 2010 issue of Postscript.
An adjunct instructor at American Military University, Speer also wrote an in-depth study of Robinett, Broomsticks to Battlefields, available at www.deespublishing.com. He is currently finalizing research on another Delaware Military College alumnus, David Vickers Jr. (1861). Speer blogs about his research at http://broomstickstobattlefield.blogspot.com/.
