General US Grant's War-Time Letters


Oregon Historical Society will be exhibiting General US Grants letters and used the talents of Tom Clifford, VoiceOver & Creative Services to engage visitors of how he sounded while drafting the letters.

Tom recounts Grant's letter drafting regarding a meeting with General Longstreet. Grant  resists the meeting until one of his generals interviews Longstreet first before he will decide to meet with him.

As a bit of trivia; Lincoln and his wife invited the Grants to accompany them to Fords Theater on April 14 1865, the nite that John Wilkes Booth assassinated the president.
