On Nov. 12, 2020, Lieutenant Colonel Seanegan P. Sculley kicked off the 2020-21 season of the Museum's Read the Revolution Speaker Series with a virtual discussion of his recent book, Contest for Liberty: Military Leadership in the Continental Army, 1775-1783 (Westholme Publishing, 2019). Sculley offered insights into the key challenges faced by General George Washington and discussed how American colonial ideals shaped command, discipline, and honor in the U.S. Armed Forces.

LTC Sculley earned his Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and is currently an Associate Professor of History at the United States Military Academy. He has served in the United States Army as both an enlisted soldier and an officer since 1995.

Contest for Liberty is available to purchase online from Westholme Publishing.
