Unconditional Surrender: An Intimate Chat with Ulysses S. Grant
Wednesday April 19, 2017
Step into history for a face-to-face chat with Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th President of the United States and “the face of the 50”! Portrayed by Kenneth Serfass, a professional living historian, the General has agreed to “grant” us this coveted sit-down to get the low-down on his life, battles, and great loves.
Get ready to surrender your attention to the man who once confessed to knowing only two tunes — “one of them is Yankee Doodle and the other one isn’t”— for an evening dedicated to the details of American history and the General who made them.
Refreshments will be served.
Bio: Gunnery Sgt. Kenneth J. Serfass was born in Bethlehem, PA on June 18th, 1966. He is a retired US Marine, with a 20 year career as a Marine bandsman, and his final tour was with the First Marine Division Band during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 -2004.
Ken has created a niche as a full time professional living historian portraying his lifelong personal hero, Ulysses S. Grant. He has been appearing publically as General Grant since 2009, presenting the general or president in walking tours, horseback rides, rail road excursion rides, and at various living history and roundtable events on a regular basis across most of the northeast and in Southern California and for several national parks as well.
