Although CivilWarTalk has had several threads about Grant and slavery I am not sure we have had a detailed discussion on Grants views of the institution of slavery. I am a member of the Ann Arbor Civil War Round Table and our Zoom meeting next month with have Nathan Provost talk to us about Grant and slavery. The subject sounds interesting but I am not familiar with Nathan Provost and might have to research him on line. It might not hurt me to review some of our older threads about Grant and slavery. What would be essential knowledge I would need to have about Grant and slavery that would help me enjoy Nathan Provost's presentation?
