Please join the Perinton Historical Society on Tuesday, March

15, 2011, for a once in a lifetime opportunity as we proudly

welcome President Ulysses S. Grant to Fairport. President

Grant, as portrayed by Steve Trimm of Grant Cottage in

Wilton, New York, will speak of his time as General during

the Civil War. He will also discuss the eight years he served

as the 18th President of the United States. The President will

take questions following his speech.

Steve Trimm has been involved with Grant Cottage for the

last four years, as a tour guide and through educational

outreach programs. He recently had an article about Grant

Cottage caretaker and Civil War veteran Oliver P. Clarke

published in New York Archives magazine. Besides

portraying President Grant, Oliver P. Clarke and several

other notable historical figures, Mr. Trimm has broadcast a

Listener Essay on WAMC and was involved with the making

of a CD entitled, "Grant and Lincoln: A Conversation".

Information about Grant Cottage can be found at

This event is free and open to the public. It will be held at the

Fairport Museum, located at 18 Perrin Street, at 7:30 p.m. on

Tuesday, March 15, 2011.
