General Grant is Coming!
The SICWRT will host General U.S. Grant at our next meeting, Thursday, May 18th, at 7:00 p.m., at FOP #73, 804 Court Street, Evansville, Indiana. Dr. Curt Fields researches and reads extensively about General Grant in order to deliver an accurate persona of the General. His presentations are in first person, quoting from General Grant’s memoirs; articles and letters the General wrote, statements he made in interviews or wrote himself, and first-person accounts of people who knew the General or were with him and witnessed him during events. He is the same height and body style as General Grant and, therefore presents a convincing, true-to-life image of the man as he really looked. His program will cover Grant’s pursuit of Lee to Appomattox.
