Ulysses S. Grant: An American Enigma by Elizabeth Diggs

The Cottage, in Mt. McGregor (near Saratoga Springs) was the final home of our 18th century President.

Program Description:  In conjunction with PS 21’s production in September of award-winning playwright Elizabeth Diggs’ GRANT & TWAIN, Ms. Diggs discusses the fascinating life of Grant, a West Point graduate who had a deep connection to the Hudson Valley.

Grant.” With Twain’s dedication and promotion, it went on to become a nationwide best seller.
