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".

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. onTuesday, March 15, 2011.
