From the time Robert E. Lee took command of the military of Northern Virginia on June 1, 1862, until eventually the conflict of Gettysburg 13 months later, the accomplice military compiled a list of army success virtually remarkable in our nation’s background. the way it happened—the relative contributions of Lee, his most sensible command, opposing Union generals, and naturally the insurgent military itself—is the topic of Civil struggle historian Jeffry D. Wert’s interesting new history.
Wert indicates how the audacity and aggression that fueled Lee’s victories finally proved disastrous at Gettysburg. yet, as Wert explains, Lee had little selection: outnumbered by way of an opponent with better assets, he needed to take the struggle to the enemy as a way to win. whilst an both combative Union general—Ulysses S. Grant—took command of northern forces in 1864, Lee was once defeated.
A excellent military draws at the most modern scholarship to supply clean tests of Lee; his most sensible commanders Longstreet, Jackson, and Stuart; and a clever conflict procedure that also deals classes to army commanders this day.

2. It presents a completely new approach to the theory of nonlinear second-order differential equations. It gives a classification of singular points, the index theorem for closed curves, the idea of “consequents,” or the Poincar´e map for plane systems, and the basic ideas of the Poincar´e–Bendixson theorem for limit cycles. It is now part of the general theory of ordinary differential equations, a topic on which Poincar´e would publish a great deal in the years to follow. The dissertation can therefore not be separated from the memoir [Poincar´e 1881] on the global qualitative and quantitative analysis of differential equations in the plane.

Henri’s difficulties with Mannheim had a sequel—or better, a settling of accounts, one might say. Following the death of Laguerre in 1886, a new member of the Acad´emie des Sciences was elected the next year. Both Poincar´e and Mannheim were on the list of nominees. Poincar´e, 32 years old, was elected with 34 votes, while Mannheim, who could look back on a long and productive career in geometry, received 24 votes.
