First-Person Visit with General Ulysses S. Grant Concludes

11th Season of Agawam Cultural Council’s Applause Series

 

The 11th season of the Agawam Cultural Council’s Applause Series concludes on Friday, May 8, 2015 at 7:00 PM, when Sam Grant presents a first-person visit with the great Civil War general Ulysses S. Grant at the Agawam Public Library.

After an introduction of Grant’s life by Mrs. Julia D. Grant, the engagements, habits and contributions of the great Civil War general will be explored by Sam Grant through the use of lively and often humorous anecdotes, letters and his impressions of the times.

A highly acclaimed academic and motivational speaker, film producer, and United States Navy veteran, Sam Grant has dedicated the last twenty plus years of his life to understanding, portraying, and honoring Ulysses S. Grant. His inspiring and informative presentation will leave you with the overwhelming feeling that you have experienced the true General Grant, up close and personal, as history should be.
