"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

Monday, April 27, 2020

NOTE: Date has been changed due to inclement weather.

Location: from the comfort of home, at your computer

Please join us online one week from today! Registration info below . . .

Although this year's Grant birthday events have been canceled, the Grant Monument Association is pleased to invite you to a live online event to mark the occasion: a colloquy between General David Petraeus and Elizabeth Samet, the professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point who published an annotated edition of Grant's memoirs.

Few if any figures in American history have been as misunderstood as Ulysses S. Grant. He has undergone a dramatic reassessment in recent years. Discussion will cover historians' changing views and aspects of Grant's leadership and legacy that every student of history should know. Take note of Professor Samet's observations in this article she published last year in the Harvard Magazine.

The colloquy will take place on Grant's birthday,  Monday, April 27, from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. You may  register through Zoom at this link to watch the colloquy or watch the livestream at this link from your computer or phone. During the event, you may submit questions via Zoom or, for those watching livestream, by email to gma@grantstomb.org.

While we will not be able to meet in person for dinner this year, we will still be able to share part of the evening together--over drinks if you are so inclined. And besides being able to continue our evening colloquy tradition with General Petraeus, we are glad to bring back Professor Samet, who would have been the keynote speaker at this year's Grant birthday ceremony at Grant's Tomb.

We hope you will join us on April 27 and forward this invitation to friends and especially students who are now learning history from home. Thank you for your support of the GMA, and for your interest in historical education. Stay safe!

With appreciation,

Frank Scaturro
