1.1 Death on the Monongahela (book review; book written by Citadel professor)

Unsurprisingly, given its dramatic narrative, this ill-fated campaign has attracted the attention of many fine historians, yet none of them has explored it so thoughtfully and compellingly as David Preston. His “Braddock’s Defeat: The Battle of the Monongahela and the Road to Revolution” is distinguished not simply by his refusal to accept traditional interpretations but by his readiness to consider the perspectives of all the protagonists: British, colonial American, French-Canadian and, not least, Indian.

2. History lesson (letter to the editor)

The recent killings at Emanuel AME Church were unspeakable, and we all hope and pray this will never happen again in Charleston or anywhere. But a recent op-ed, “Build on unity against racism,” by Citadel history instructors Amanda Mushal and Kerry Taylor gives the impression that they have forgotten some of our history or have been using a new liberal text.

Citadel hopes for Allen-Jackson duo on offense

With veteran players all over the depth chart on offense, Citadel football coach Mike Houston knows there’s at least one major decision he’s got to get right after preseason practice starts Friday. Competing to replace Miller will be sophomores Dominique Allen and Cam Jackson. Allen, Miller’s backup last season, looked to be the leader before injuring his knee in spring practice. Jackson, who had a breakout season at slotback in 2013, was then moved back to quarterback — where he played in high school — and performed well.

Ready or not, John McKissick faces a season without football

Still, there’s one thing McKissick will be eager to do this fall — watch his grandson, Joe Call, coach the Green Wave.  Call, 36, played quarterback for his grandfather at Summerville, then at The Citadel. He’s been an assistant coach for the Green Wave since 2003, the offensive coordinator since 2007. He was named the Green Wave’s interim coach for the 2015 season on June 25, while another former McKissick player, Brion Rutherford, was named to replace McKissick as athletic director.

Stamford grads travel not far and wide

 They may have started in Stamford, but they’re off to many places - some as near as Broad Street, some as far as Wyoming.  Data compiled by the Stamford school district show the diversity in the college plans for its graduating seniors.  “If you look across all of our high schools, there’s such a broad spectrum,” district spokeswoman Sharon Beadle said.  The district is sending three students off to military service academies, with two students planning to attend the United States Military Academy and one heading to the Air Force Academy. Another student will be attending The Citadel in South Carolina.

The International Armed Services Judo and Jujitsu Academy (IASJJA) has honored Ronald Allan Charles, Ph.D, notable graduate of the Citadel's Class of 1965, for his outstanding warrior spirit maintaining the highest degree of martial arts competency.

6. SEC honors past leadership
It's interesting to look back on 75 years of an organization's history, but having 75 years of history in one room at one time is astonishing. That's just what happened July 23, at Santee Electric Cooperative (SEC) headquarters in Kingstree. All six of the organization's leaders or a family representative came together to celebrate the organization's beginning and pay special tribute to Walter E. Blackwell. Keels, set to retire July 31, made it his personal mission to research Blackwell and have his picture added to the organization's wall of history alongside the other cooperative's five leaders. Blackwell was hired as Project Superintendent in early 1940. With a degree in physics from The Citadel and another in electrical engineering from Georgia Tech. Blackwell arrived in Kingstree with not much more than an executive order and a map, Keels said. "He was dedicated, a hard worker and the strongest language he ever uses was the saying, 'I'll be John Brown,'" Professor Johnny Evans said of Blackwell. The two men worked at the Citadel together. "Dad's greatest accomplishment was his dedication to Jesus Christ," Ted Blackwell said. He added that he remembered his father being a very hard worker because of the example his parents set for him. He also quoted 2 Timothy 4:7-8 as it is written on his father's tombstone... "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day - and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for this appearing."

7. Former James Island charter school principal to lead Bridges Prep
Bridges Preparatory School has tapped the former principal of a Charleston area charter school as its new interim head of school. Robert Bohnstengel, a teacher and principal with 40 years of experience, started work Monday after the school's board of directors approved his hiring in an emergency session July 24. Bohnstengel replaces Benjamin Rollins. Rollins' contract was voided by the board of directors over "discrepancies and significant omissions on his resume," the school announced July 10. He had been on the job 10 days. Bohnstengel's contract with Bridges will run through Dec. 31, and a search for a permanent head of school will start in the fall. Bohnstengel earned a bachelor's degree from the University of South Carolina, a master's degree and an educational specialist degree from The Citadel, and a doctorate in education administration from USC, the release said. He began his teaching career with the Jasper County School District in the mid-1970s.

8. Letter: 'Thank you, Charleston - I'm home'
As my tour as commanding officer of Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic comes to an end, I am grateful for the pleasure of serving in the Lowcountry, commanding one of the Navy's premier information-dominance organizations, comprised of the finest professionals I have ever known. I am truly blessed. Since my arrival at SSC Atlantic in August of 2013, you have welcomed me. You made me feel as if Charleston was home. Charleston's unique Navy heritage goes back to 1890, when the foundation for a naval shipyard in North Charleston was laid. The partnerships that exist today continue to grow stronger from the roots we planted over 125 years ago. They include what is now Joint Base Charleston and its military units, local city, state and federal government personnel, the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, The Citadel, area school districts, area colleges and universities and local industry. Like an aspen grove, we grow as one.

9. Coaches complaining about Notre Dame's schedule should look at their own
A bunch of college football coaches are complaining about Notre Dame at the moment. I don't know why. The Irish don't have a conference in football, as has been the case for eternity, and this is suddenly a serious problem now that there's a College Football Playoff. Notre Dame doesn't have to play a 13th opponent in a conference championship, you see, which is an unfair advantage. Among the recent powers whose coaches have complained about Notre Dame, here are some regular-season opponents either from the last five years or on upcoming schedules, via FBSchedules.com. You'll spot a lot of FCS teams, former FCS teams and lower mid-majors. South Carolina: The Citadel

3. Former Carolina Forest, Charleston Southern golfer finds focus at The Citadel
It begins like most of his golf rounds. Grunting gently over stiff muscles, Anthony Caroso drives his tee ball into a fairway bunker, lays up short and then wedges it onto the green for a routine two-putt par. The second hole unfolds in similar fashion. He stripes it down the middle, another wedge and another two putts. He's even par so far on the round. It's at this point the former Carolina Forest standout discusses how a life-altering event shifted his focus from golf to family and career. "My junior year was difficult because that summer, my dad and I were playing golf and he had a stroke," Caroso said. "That really hurt me a lot, seeing my dad down."

1. Citadel football dealing with alcohol-related arrests
Little more than a month from its season opener, The Citadel's football program finds itself dealing with a series of alcohol-related arrests during the offseason. Three Citadel players have been arrested since Feb. 20, all on alcohol-related offenses. One player was arrested in February, another in March and the third on July 17. The military school said Monday that all three players remain on the team. Two of the players - junior linebacker Dondray Copeland and sophomore receiver Taylor Kimball - were suspended for spring practice and the spring game after their arrests. The third, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Sydney Martin, will be suspended for the season opener against Davidson on Sept. 5, a school spokesman said.

3. Greenvillians joined "punitive expedition" into Mexico to capture Pancho Villa
Pancho Villa was terrorizing America's southwest border in 1916. Company A of the First South Carolina Infantry, Greenvillians all, was sent to help stop him. A revolutionary hero in his native Chihuahua Province, where he had redistributed hacienda lands among the poor, Villa had invaded the United States because U.S. authorities had recognized his opponent, Carranza, as president of Mexico and had allowed his troops to ride American railroads to attack Villa and his guerrilla forces. The First Regiment was commanded by Colonel Edgeworth M. Blythe, a Greenville attorney who was a Citadel graduate (Class of 1891), and whose adjutant was Major (and former three-term mayor) G. Heyward Mahon. On June 18, 1916, the first battalion received orders to proceed to Camp Moore at Styx, South Carolina, not far from Columbia. The battalion, composed of companies from Greenville, Anderson, Pelzer, Pickens and Laurens, was commanded by Major Richard Watson. (Another Citadel graduate, he would serve as Greenville's mayor in the 1920s. His peach orchard was, about 70 years later, developed as Watson's Orchard). Greenville's long-revered Butler Guards became Company A of that battalion, commanded by Captain W. D. Workman. Another Citadel graduate, he was planning to open a military academy located in the former Chick Springs hotel. (His grandson would be Greenville mayor in the 1990s.)
