Speaker:  Kenneth J. Serfass, Gunnery Sgt. USMC, Retired and Ulysses S. Grant First-person Impressionist

General Ulysses S. Grant will give background on the development of railroads in America during his own formative years and will describe how the nation and its railroads grew up together in the tumultuous years of the American Civil War.  General Grant will relate his own experiences with trains and railroading from his youth to becoming the victor of the civil war through stories and artifacts from the period.
