"The thing then to be desired above all others is confidence in one's self..." Charles Young
Throughout his life, Charles Young overcame countless obstacles in his ascent to prominence.  In spite of overt racism and stifling inequality, Young rose through the military ranks to become one of the most respected leaders of his time.  A well-rounded man with a steadfast devotion to duty, Young led by example and inspired a generation of new leaders.

This is a fairly new site, with an important and interesting American story to tell, which will hopefully be developed to match its importance over time.
