4/21/2022 - Ulysses S. Grant on May 24, 2022

On Tuesday, May 24th, 2022 from 2-3:30pm on Zoom and streamed to the Kingsley Room, join us for a virtual program about Ulysses S. Grant, 18th President of the United States of America and famed Civil War General.

Ulysses S. Grant is one of the foremost figures in late 19th century American history but is also one of the most misunderstood. Although he served two terms as our 18th President, he is more well known today for being the commanding general of the U.S. army during the Civil War. Join us as we take a look at this larger-than-life figure and try to learn more about the man behind the myth.

Mallory Howard is an accomplished, experienced public speaker and an expert on the life and work of Mark Twain and on his Hartford, Connecticut home. She is also knowledgeable in American presidential history as well as the social and cultural impact of the gilded age. She is the assistant curator at The Mark Twain House & Museum.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library. Registration is required. Zoom invitation links will be sent via email on the day of the program.
