For September, we are reading Ron Chernow's "Grant". Let's read chapters 6-24 (p. 113-518): this takes us from Grant at his epic low as a clerk reporting to his two younger brothers in his father's saddle shop in Galena IL, to one of his greatest triumphs and magnanimity at Appomattox. Please join us for an always enjoyable get-together with good friends, good food, and good conversation. Contact [email protected] for location details. Donation of $10 is appreciated.
