Other Leaders, Other Heroes: West Point's Legacy to America Beyond the Field of Battle (History; 60)
As West Point celebrates its bicentennial, this study provides examples of significant non-combat contributions made by Military Academy graduates to the development and growth of the United States. It includes a sampling of the accomplishments of the military academy's doctors, clergy, builders, and educators, and tells the story of the statesmen, engineers, industrialists and financiers, artists, and writers who all began their careers at the Military Academy. Their success prompted President Theodore Roosevelt to remark at the centennial celebration that no other educational institution in the land has contributed as many names as West Point has contributed to the honor roll of the nation's citizens. After two hundred years, West Point continues to provide the nation with men, as well as women, of character, trained to undertake the leadership and direction of large enterprises, both in war and peace.
