A 'No-holds Barred' Interview With President/General Ulysses S Grant
Wednesday, September 22nd, 7pm CST (Zoom webinar)
Fellow Illinoisan, Ulysses S Grant, is one of the least understood of our American heroes. He is regarded highly by some and scorned by others. This is not unusual for him as even his good friend, General Sherman, said that Grant was an enigma even to himself.
Our program will be an interview with Grant himself, played by Larry Werline, with no question off-limits. Grant was known for his honesty so there could be some interesting answers to some of his most controversial topics.
