Let Us Have Peace

"At the conclusion of his 2nd. Inaugural Address, President Lincoln urged Americans" to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations." Lincoln recognized that international and domestic peace are threads of a single tapestry. General Grant recognized the same truth. In fact, he had thought a great deal about how societies and individuals might contribute to peace-making. Today he will share some of those thoughts and explain why " Let Us Have Peace " became the cry of his heart. This program is inspired by International Day of Peace, which is on September 21st. Grant Cottage tour guide Steve Trimm will portray General Grant. "  

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.
