This Grant project entitled Faces of History was for Classical Conversations. When I completed the writing, I presented it to the whole Essentials writing class. I presented my project on the 150th anniversary of the day that Grant and Lee settled all terms of surrender for Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. I chose Grant for this project because I like the fact that Lincoln said about Grant, “I can’t spare him…he fights!” I also learned that when Grant was a boy some said of his work ethic that he would do the work of a grown man.

The laughter at the end was due to the fact that Mrs. Barham always gives the parents the best candy first and then the kids get the cheap hard candy that is left over.
