book signing

Civil War Author Frank Varney, 5-7 p.m., The Uptown Building, 9819 Graphite Mountain Road, Hague. Author Frank Varney will be presenting and signing copies of his book, “General Grant and the Rewriting of History.” This event hosted by The Hague Historical Society will be at The Uptown Building, next to The Firehouse Restaurant. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was an outstanding soldier and, so we have long believed, a good man. History’s wholesale acceptance of his version of events has distorted our assessment of Rosecrans and other officers, and even of the Civil War itself. Grant intentionally tried to control how future generations would remember the Civil War, and in large measure he succeeded. The first of two volumes on this subject, “General Grant and the Rewriting of History,” aptly demonstrates, however, that blindly accepting historical “truths” without vigorous challenge is a perilous path to understanding real history.

Doug Irving/Neal Herr Joint CD Release Parties, 6:30-9 p.m., Strand Theater, 210 Main St., Hudson Falls. Join two old friends, Doug Irving and Neal Herr, as they share songs from their latest album releases. With 35 studio albums between them, (Irving, 20; Herr, 15), their musical influences span decades, but this concert event won’t be a pure studio re-creation. Expect an inspired and simplistic sampling of songs from Irving’s “Truthville” and Herr’s “Every Day I Fall in Love,” with some instrumentation and strong vocals. Coincidentally, both CDs were mixed and mastered at Alan Dunham’s Lylac Studio in South Glens Falls. Both songwriters for decades, some of the thematic directions are common, but Herr tends toward more of a pop-rock-folk-jazz-Cajun gumbo feel while Irving tends to venture into traditional country, R&B and bluegrass, bringing his years in Texas and Nashville, Tennessee to bear. On both albums you will find stories of love and desire, focusing on love lost, politics, parenthood and solitude. Admission is $12 general/$10 for seniors and students. CDs will be available for purchase. For more information, call 518-409-3192.

lecture

It Began with Danny Ammen, 1-2 p.m., Grant Cottage, 1000 Mt. McGregor Road, Wilton. When Ulysses S. Grant was a little boy, he almost drowned. His best friend, Danny Ammen, saved his life. In a very real sense, then, we have Danny Ammen to thank for the preservation of the Union, the destruction of slavery and the accomplishments of a president. (Or, as Grant joked in a letter to Ammen 50 years after being rescued, “You are responsible for the many trials and difficulties I have passed through in the last half century. But I am of a forgiving nature and I do forgive you.”) Who was Daniel Ammen? What became of him? Like the boy he saved, Daniel grew up to be a military man. He served in the U.S. Navy. By the time the Civil War erupted, Daniel had seen the world. From the Arctic to the Mediterranean and around Cape Horn to Polynesia, Japan and China, Daniel had become a young Old Salt. During the war, Daniel would be noted for conspicuous gallantry in the Battle of Port Royal. Commanding an ironclad, he’d get into an artillery duel with rebel-held Fort Sumter and, although his vessel was hit 47 times, it wasn’t knocked out of action. In 1864, he would put down a mutiny of thugs drafted into the Yankee Navy. And then there was the conversation with Jefferson Davis that changed the direction of Daniel’s life. Tour guide Steve Trimm invites you to hear the epic tale of Admiral Ammen.
