Ulysses S. Grant Visits Ainsworth Community Schools 8th Graders
Friday, January 11, 2019 was a special day for the 8th grade Social Studies students at Ainsworth Community Schools. Dr. Thomas King, former college history instructor from Doane College, visited with the students in the person of President Ulysses S. Grant. Dr. King has done extensive research on Grant and is able to portray this famous American general and president as though he is really Grant. This program allowed the students to enjoy going beyond the pages of the text book and learning detailed information about the Civil War. This program is funded by Humanities Nebraska. Humanities Nebraska receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Nebraska State Legislature, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, private donations, and the Shoemaker Family Foundation.
