Sunday, April 22: Essentially American: General Grenville Dodge

Grenville Dodge served as a businessman, U.S. Congressman, railroad builder, and a pioneering figure in military intelligence during the Civil War.  Dodge likely had greater influence over Council Bluffs than just about anyone else in the city's history.  Danette Hen-Snider, Acting Director of the Historic General Dodge House Museum, will provide an overview of the life of Council Bluffs' leading citizen in a program Sunday, April 22, 2 pm at Bayliss Hall, just north of Bayliss Park at 530 First Avenue in Council Bluffs.  There is no admission charge and the public is invited.
