Lincoln and Grant
Kenneth J. Serfass as Ulysses S. Grant
Saturday, October 13, 2018 – 1:00 – 2:30 PM
Join Ulysses S. Grant (portrayed by Kenneth J. Serfass) for an informative conversation on his elationship with President, Abraham Lincoln.
In a May 26, 1863 letter to Isaac Arnold, Abraham Lincoln referred to Grant’s possible capture of Vicksburg, saying, “his campaign from the beginning of this month up to the twenty second day of it, is one of the most brilliant in the world.” And thus began an unusual friendship. Lincoln and Grant developed a working relationship in which each was comfortable with his and the other’s role.
It is with a profound honor that he tells the story of one of America’s greatest military leaders and Ken takes it very seriously to reaffirm Grant’s place of honor among the most respected people of our nation’s history. His passion for the subject is evident in his presentation, and it is hard not to be affected by his enthusiasm for his subject and believe that you’ve met US Grant in living history.
Light refreshments served. 2nd Saturday Lecture Series made possible by the Massey Charitable Trust.
