On Thursday, September 20, the Nau Center will host John Marszalek, professor emeritus from Mississippi State University, to talk about his annotated edition of Ulysses S. Grant's famous account of the Civil War, The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant. As director of the Grant Papers documentary editing project, Marszalek's new edition of the Memoirs is based on original manuscripts and fully annotated with the aid of the vast collection of Grant's personal correspondence owned by the project and Grant presidential library. Not only are the memoirs well-written, but they provide important insight into the war from the North's most famous and successful general.
This event is free and open to the public and no advance registration is required. Paid parking is available nearby at the Central Grounds Parking Garage located near the UVA bookstore.
