Since 2011, the after-school Play On, Philly! initiative has provided daily musical instruction to hundreds of Philadelphia students in communities that otherwise have little access to music education. Modeled after Venezuela’s acclaimed El Sistema youth orchestra project, it is one of two U.S. programs—with New York’s Sistema-inspired Harmony Program—featured in the 2014 documentary Crescendo: The Power of Music.

On the morning of May 3, 1863, on the cusp of one of the most remarkable tactical battlefield victories in American military history, Gen. Robert E. Lee rode to a crossroads clearing in Virginia known as Chancellorsville amid the cheers of his high-spirited Confederate troops.

Few in that moment of triumph could envision the South’s complete defeat in less than two years. Ethan S. Rafuse of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth discusses the factors and events leading to Lee’s surrender in April 1865, including an examination of Lee’s legendary generalship.

Co-sponsored by the Command and General Staff College Foundation.
