Grant’s Next Chapter

Vicksburg was not only a major turning point in the American Civil War, it was a pivotal event in the career of Ulysses S. Grant.  What made it so important to him? Why was his post-Vicksburg career so different? Historian Chris Mackowski explains why Vicksburg literally closed the book on one phase of Grant’s career and set the stage for a whole new chapter.

The suggested donation for Grant Cottage Porch Programs is $5 per person. These programs are made possible thanks to a grant from the Adirondack Trust Community Fund. Our events are supported with funding from the New York State Park and Trail Partnership Program (NYSPTPP) and New York’s Environmental Protection Fund. The NYSPTPP is administered by Parks & Trails New York, in partnership with the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
