Description

Friday, April 26, 2019 Lincoln Depot Museum Opening Weekend: Join Professional Living Historian Kenneth J. Serfass (USMC Ret.) at the Lincoln Depot Museum in Peekskill for his first-person portrayal of General US Grant. Serfass will present a rare glimpse into the personal relationship that developed between Grant and President Abraham Lincoln. The two men sustained each other for what was to come before the surrender of confederate armies, and that shared responsibility built a profound bond between two like-minded men regarding fairness and humanity towards a vanquished foe. It's not always told in battle reports and dispatches, but the stories of friends go much deeper sometimes. 7:30pm. $5 admission or free for museum members. 10 S. Water Street, Peekskill, NY 10566.
