The Bradford County Library presents Kenneth J. Serfass, Gunnery Sgt USMC, (retired) as General U.S. Grant, discussing Grant’s Life and Myths on Monday, July 27, at 6:00 p.m.  This event will be available through Zoom only.  Please call 570-297-2436 or email bclibrary@bradfordco.org to register for this event.

Popular myth in our age has distorted the truth about US Grant in many instances, and Ken’s program is meant to give guests a better understanding of who Grant really was by bringing him to life so they can interact with him as a friend might to learn more about who he really is.

Gunnery Sgt Kenneth J. Serfass was born in Bethlehem, PA.  A US Marine since 1984, his final tour was with the First Marine Division Band during Operation Iraqi Freedom, retiring from the Marine Corps in July of 2004.

Ken is a first-person impressionist with nearly fifty years of study of his childhood hero, U.S. Grant.  As a full-time professional living historian portraying Ulysses S. Grant, he presents between 11 and 23 appearances each month between February and December each year.  In 2015 he was invited to join The Federal Generals Corps, a living history club hosting first person impressions of many of the most well-known Union generals in the American Civil War, to be their “Ulysses S. Grant.” 

Entertaining and educational, Ken’s work has generated a great following of supporters.  It is with a profound honor that he tells the story of one of America’s greatest military leaders.
