General Fox Conner

It’s hard to be a Mississippian and not be curious or intrigued by the stories of the past. Often we focus on events, large scale movements, or political transitions, and forget that actual people, who called Mississippi home, were here living out those great stories.

Award winning author, Steven Rabalais, stopped by the studio to talk about one Mississippian’s historical significance that seemed to have gone unforgotten.

Book titled, Major General Fox Conner: Pershing’s Operation Officer and Eisenhower’s Mentor, was awarded best biography by the Army Historical Foundation.
