2011-A11-CR, at Interpretive Forum I (Military History): “Clermont As Military Witness”

Whitehorne describes military events that occurred near or on Clermont, but indicates that the greater military story lies in the contributions of its four owner-families (Vance, Wadlington, Snickers, McCormick-Williams) serving in every generation and who in doing so witnessed many of the events that defined and explained the path of American history, whose final representative was Admiral Lynde McCormick, the first Supreme Commander Atlantic NATO, who died in office as President of the Naval War College in 1956.  39 pages
