On October 15, 2021 at 10:00 A.M., the MacArthur Memorial will open a new special exhibit entitled: Command Presence: MacArthur, Media & Mass Appeal. This new exhibit will explore MacArthur's relationship with the press and the role mass media plays in the perception of heroes, villains, and major events. It will also trace MacArthur's evolution as a pop-culture figure and highlight the continued international resonance of this image.
This exhibit will remain on display until FALL 2023.
During World War I, General John J. Pershing considered Douglas MacArthur his finest battlefield commander and George Marshall his finest staff officer. Pershing preferred Marshall to MacArthur but acknowledged that they were very different men. While both men would go on to have a very long, very consequential working relationship, their World War I service sowed a seed of antagonism that had major consequences in the future. What happened between them in World War I???
Join Jim Zobel and Amanda Williams on November 17th at noon EST for a virtual discussion of the MacArthur/Marshall relationship in World War I. A virtual discussion on December 10 will discuss their WWII/Korea relationship.
