The Ticonderoga Historical Society will present its first program of the year on Friday, July 31 at 7 p.m. at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga.
“One Man’s Impact: U.S. Grant and Our Memory of the Civil War” will feature Dickenson State University Professor Frank Varney, who will discuss the manipulation of memory and ways in which the esteemed general may have deliberately undermined the careers of other officers, including Rosecrans, Hooker, Thomas and New York native G.K. Warren.
“Frank is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker who never fails to enlighten,” said THS President Bill Dolback. “Offering this program is an ideal way for us to encourage new dialogue about an always popular historical subject – the American Civil War.”
The program will be held outdoors and is cancelled in the event of rain. Program attendance will be limited to 25 and reservations are required. Social distancing guidelines will be enforced and masks are required. Reservations may be made by calling the Hancock House at 518-585-7868 or via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
