Things are not always as they are portrayed when studying historic figures. Was Ulysses S. Grant truly the silent man as often described? Join author and historian Dr. Chris Mackowski on Grant Cottage’s porch as he explores the real story behind the misunderstood and fully capable communicator who was U.S. Grant. A book signing will follow the program.

Dr. Mackowski is a Professor of Communication and Jandoli School Assistant Dean at St. Bonaventure University. He is the Managing Editor of the Emerging Civil War book series and blog and has been featured on several television programs. His books have been widely published, and he is the author of nine books, including Grant’s Last Battle. Dr. Mackowski’s program will be the first in the annual Grant Cottage Literary Landmark Authors series.
