Presented by Thomas N. King. Step back to the Civil War era and listen to tales and personal history from one of America’s most famous generals. This Chautauqua-style portrayal takes Ulysses S. Grant from personal mediocrity to his promotion to the highest-ranking general in the Union Army. Complete with period costume, the presentation allows audiences to relive the war years through the eyes of General Grant.
Thomas N. King has degrees in history and secondary education from Westminster College in Fulton, Mo., and a doctorate in curriculum and instruction from Oklahoma State University. He teaches a Civil War course for Doane College in Crete.
