The Society's Next Program

Our next program will be on Monday February 26th at 6:00 p.m.

Dr. Mark Bellnap will give a presentation on the life of Major Marcus Reno and the Court of Inquiry which rendered a judgement on his conduct at the Battle of the Little Bighorn.

Dr. Bellnap's interest in the Battle of the Little Bighorn spans over twenty years in which time he has written scholarly papers and given presentations at educational forums.  More recently he serves as an interpreter on the battlefield during the annual “Little Bighorn Days” in Montana. His topic on February 26 will include the life of Major Marcus Reno with the primary emphasis on the Court of Inquiry which rendered a judgement on his conduct at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Bellnap will also discuss Reno’s two Court Martials, a brief overview of the Battle Reno-Benteen Hill, media comments at the time about Custer and Reno,  and the findings of the Correction Board.

 

 Dr. Bellnap has a BA in political science, and an MPA and DPA in public administration. In addition, he has worked as an adjunct political science college instructor.
