Hanlon: General Grant Returns to Monmouth County

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Hanlon today announced that Richard Hill, a President Ulysses S. Grant re-enactor, will speak at the County Clerk’s 23rd Annual Archives and History Day on Saturday, October 13th at the Monmouth County Library Headquarters located at 125 Symmes Drive in Manalapan.

The actor will in part focus on reminiscences about Grant’s days in Long Branch. 

At 10 a.m., Hill will address the audience, and will be available at his exhibitor table throughout the event which runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

President Ulysses S. Grant’s 28-room cottage in Long Branch, where he spent his summers between 1870 to 1884, is featured in this year’s Archives Day Exhibit and Catalog titled, “Historic Buildings in Monmouth County: Stories and Styles.”

Hanlon said Hill is a presenter of historical figures from the American Civil War Era. With more than fifty years of experience researching period characters and events, he presents Ulysses S. Grant during his wartime tenure as a general officer of the United States Army or as 18th President of the United States.
