When: Sat., July 14, 4 p.m. 2018
Hugh Howard and Elizabeth Diggs will appear together. The informal conversation will focus on Grant and his life at The Cottage, but may range into a much wider sphere. Both writers are well-versed in the history of the Civil War and may well include some of Grant’s strategies, or touch upon his birthplace in Point Pleasant, Ohio. (After his death, the edifice spent months being shipped around the U.S. on a railroad flat car as a tribute–allowing an adoring public a chance to “touch” his life).
