On Thursday, September 20 at 5pm, the Nau Center will host John Marszalek at the Small Special Collections Library auditorium to talk about his new annotated edition of Ulysses S. Grant's famous account of the Civil War, The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant.
Marszalek is the Giles Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Mississippi State University and the executive director and managing editor of the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library. His 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 Grant library. The memoirs provide important insight into the war from the perspective of 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.
Copies of the Memoirs will be available for purchase and there will be a chance to meet the editor and have your book signed after our event.
This lecture is generously funded by William F. Crozer ’07.
