American Ulysses: A Life of Ulysses S. Grant | Ronald C. White
Wednesday, October 26, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (CDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
In his time, Ulysses S. Grant was routinely grouped with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in the Trinity of great American leaders. When and why did Grant fall from favor, and why do we need to revise our estimates of him in the 21st century. New York Times bestselling author Ronald C. White will present the dramatic story of one of America’s greatest military leaders and most misunderstood presidents.
Ronald C. White is the author of three bestselling books on Abraham Lincoln, including most recently A. Lincoln. White earned his Ph.D. at Princeton and has lectured on Lincoln at hundreds of universities and other organizations, and at Gettysburg and the White House. He is a Fellow at the Huntington Library and a Senior Fellow of the Trinity Forum of Washington, D.C.
A light reception will precede the event beginning at 5:30 pm, with the lecture starting at 6:00 pm.
Parking will be available on the SMU campus. FREE passes will be emailed to registered guests before the event. Seating is limited, and not guaranteed.
Dr. White’s latest publication of the same title will be available for purchase and signing after the event.
