Description

An understanding of Brigadier General Marsena Patrick and his work as Provost Marshal General for the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War should foster a better understanding of how American Army provost operations developed through the nineteenth century. This thesis examined first the origins of military police work in the United States Army. It then surveyed Marsena Patrick's background, training, and leadership experiences prior to his appointment as provost marshal general. It went on to study Patrick's performance as provost marshal general during the second half of the Civil War. The thesis concluded with an examination of the influence of Patrick's efforts on military police work today. Patrick's professionalism and compassion live on in the duty performance of military police today.show more
