Please join General Grant at the Springfield, Ohio, Civil War Symposium as he talks of his career. He was the first Lieutenant General since Washington and the only American General to take the surrender of three full armies (and he did it in the same war!).
President Grant will address the assemblage in the last part of the day to talk of his administration and talk a bit about his post-Presidency diplomacy during his two and a half year cruise around the world.
The General hopes to see you there in History!
