Paul David Taulbee isn’t bashful when he addresses the accomplishments of Cassius Marcellus Clay.
“General Clay never has received proper credit for the significant contributions he made in a most critical period of the nation’s history,” the Perry County (KY) educator, editor and Civil War enthusiast stated.
Taulbee’s goal is to correct “the deficiency by allowing Clay to tell his full and complete story.”
He’s doing that by portraying the soldier, politician, diplomat and crusading editor and abolitionist at this Caney Convocation Series event.
Taulbee’s portrayals cover three periods of Clay’s life: his early life from 1810-35, politics and journalism, 1835-60, and The Civil War and period of diplomacy, 1861-69.
