The University of West Florida Department of History seeks to provide a foundation for better understanding the world in which we live, to produce high quality scholarship that makes a significant contribution to the discipline and to serve community needs by providing a source for historical information and expertise crucial to preserving heritage, especially Northwest Florida.
Moni Boling, a retired Army veteran with 22-years of active duty service, is a graduate student in the University of West Florida’s Public History Program. He is currently finishing the last of his requirements and is set to graduate in May of 2015. During the spring semester of 2014, Moni completed a paper on General Nathanael Greene as a requirement of his American Revolution course and submitted it for publication to Officer Review, a journal published by The Military Order of the World Wars. Released in two parts, Moni’s paper entitled “Nathanael Greene: Underappreciated Patriot” appeared in the November and December 2014 issues of Officer Review. In his article, Moni argues that General Greene’s battlefield contributions had a significant impact on the success of the Continental Army during the American Revolution.
