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”.
