Coming June 6, 2013


Walter E. Wilson will discuss his book James Bulloch: Secret Agent and Mastermind of the Confederate Navy. Walt Wilson is a retired Navy Captain with over 28 years of active duty service as an Intelligence Officer. After leaving the Navy in 2002, he and his wife of over 40 years returned to their roots in Texas. He is the co-author of the first biography of James D. Bulloch, Secret Agent and Mastermind of the Confederate Navy. As the former head of the Navy's intelligence operations in Europe, Walt felt a special connection with Bulloch, the ingenious secret agent who conjured up a fleet of cruisers and blockade runners from his base in Liverpool against incredible odds during the American Civil War. Bulloch was also the favorite Uncle and mentor of a future U.S. President, Theodore Roosevelt.
