Not sure if this is the right forum, but I will ask anyway. Just read up how the founder of Norwich was the former supertinent of West Point and how he was basically kicked out. My question is has their been a historic animosity between the two institutions. I read one article about WP and it was very negative about Partridge including the fact that he supposedly gave preferences to those students he liked. While I havent read anything about him ouside of Wikpedia regarding Norwich, I have to imagine he was revered by the Norwich while he was there and for many years after. He is credited for creating Rotc. Actually it almost seems like we are talking about two different men. One who seems to have made a mess at WP and another who created a new insitituion that led to creation of other military academies. Was their hostility between the two schools while he was alive and did the hostility outlive him? Not trying to start a fight, just curious especially how the view about him wouldd be different depending if you are talking to someone who went to WP or Norwich.
