Grant & Lee

Opposing forces, powerful men. Ulysses S. Grant came from common stock. Robert E. Lee was the star wherever he was at. Grant came through West Point with few possibilities for a future. Lee was very successful and it was known that he would become a great military force. They met briefly during the Mexican War. Lee didn’t remember and to Grant, it was a highlight of his life. They faced each other on several battlefields in the Civil War and met in April of 1865 across a kitchen table to bring about an end to that uncivil war. One became a college president and one became president. Come and hear their stories.
