Lieutenant Flipper’s Trial – The Play

Picture of Lieutenant Flipper

Thursday, February 22, 2018, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Auditorium.

A one-act play dramatizing the fateful 1881 trial of Lt. Henry O. Flipper.

In 1877, Lt. Flipper was the first African-American to graduate from West Point. In 1880, Flipper distinguished himself in the War against Warm Spring Apache Chief Victorio. A year later, 25-year-old Flipper was tried for embezzlement of government funds. He was dismissed from the Army on June 30, 1882. This play dramatizes the 1881 court martial and draws the audience into the controversy about whether Lt. Flipper was treated fairly before, during and after the trial. Presented and performed by the play’s author, Bob Rogers, a former U.S. Army Captain and combat leader during the Vietnam War in Troop A, 1/10th Cavalry.
