Lone Star College-Kingwood invites the community to hear an admiralís story

Published on: April 29, 2011

Lone Star College-Kingwoodís Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) invites students, faculty, staff and the community to come out and hear the story of Admiral Lord Nelson (1758-1805) , Englandís greatest hero at the time of his death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.  The lecture is on Friday, May 20 from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the East Montgomery County Improvement District (EMCID) in room 102. It will be given by Surgeon Commander Peter R. Brinsden, retired Royal Navy and recent vice chairman of the Nelson Society. He is the brother of Paul Brinsden, an ALL member.

Nelson led the English fleets to victories at the battles of the Nile and Copenhagen. He is held by most analysts and historians to be a prime example of the archetypal leader of men; his leadership skills are taught even at Annapolis. During his many campaigns and battles, Nelson suffered from several illnesses and wounds which led some of his contemporaries to believe he was a hypochondriac. In this lecture, Nelsonís campaigns and the wounds he suffered are reviewed with conclusions drawn on his life, leadership, and whether or not he was a hypochondriac!
