Greetings from Ken Serfass:  The goal of bringing US Grant to life is to present him as believably as possible, as he was as a person and not as any caricature of him to satisfy somebody's stereotypical notions of him. I do not play him for a joke and do not intend to cheapen his memory or disrespect his legacy. I welcome the fellowship of other US Grant impressionists who share this concept.

Biography - Ken Serfass:  A USMC Veteran and long time Civil War reenactor, Ken has been a student of US Grant all his life. He has appeared nationally on television, film and numerous speaking engagements. He offers a walking tour in Gettysburg set in 1867, when US Grant came to dedicate the orphanage, which gives insight to the fighting in town all three days. Offering in first person, Ken portrays the general for school visits, round table panels and other events which allow a better representation of the general's life, to restore his place as a top figure in our nation's history. Ken began this adventure in 2009 in San Diego CA, and now appears across the nation in the role of his personal hero nearly every day, either in Gettysburg or somewhere else that has asked to meet the general in person.

"We really enjoyed Ken's portrayal of Ulysses S. Grant at our library. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable about his subject matter, but he had a wonderful way of channeling Grant into his presentation in a very relatable way. We actually felt as though we were sitting around the campfire, listening to the General himself! Our patrons were enthralled and could have happily stayed all night."
