Description WHEN GENERAL GRANT EXPELLED THE JEWS – A CIVIL WAR DISCUSSION– Pulitzer Prize winning author Tony Horwitz (Midnight Rising: John Brown and the Raid that Sparked the Civil War) and Brandeis professor Jonathan Sarna (When General Grant Expelled the Jews) will explore the Civil War from their unique perspectives at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center on Wednesday, November 28 at 7:30pm. The talk will include a provocative discussion of when General Ulysses S.
