Performance – Women in History: Julia Boggs Dent Grant

A biography was released in late 2017 by famed biographer Ron Chernow, featuring Ulysses S. Grant, 18th President of the United States. This program will shift the focus to President Grant’s wife, Julia Boggs Dent Grant. She was known as a determined woman who, despite family objections, married the man she loved. Outspoken, she also created her own plans for ending the Civil War and holding a secret Presidential Inauguration. Women in History is a non-profit corporation founded in Lakewood, and dedicated to the education of all people through the dramatic re-creation of lives of notable women in U.S. history.
