January 24, 2024 – daytime meeting

The Sappington-Concord Historical Society (SCHS) quarterly meeting is Wednesday, January 24, at 3:00 p.m. in the auditorium at Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site, 7400 Grant Road. Acting Historian and Curator Nick Sacco will speak on Ulysses S. Grant’s relationship with slavery. He’ll explore Grant’s antislavery upbringing in Ohio, his interactions with enslaved people in St. Louis, and eventual embrace of emancipation during the Civil War.

Note: this is a DAYTIME meeting. If your schedule permits, come early to visit the museum.  For those who don’t drive at night, the meeting will be over about 4 p.m. However, if you are able to stay, a guided tour of the house and grounds will follow.

Looking forward to seeing you Wednesday afternoon.  Guests are welcome.
