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 World Peace Day, which is on September 21st. Grant Cottage tour guide Steve Trimm will portray General Grant. "
