“general who saved the Union”

Ulysses S Grant National Historic Site is the home of Ulysses S. Grant who is known as the victorious Civil War general who saved the Union and the 18th President of the United States. Few people know about his rise to fame or his personal life. He first met Julia Dent, his future wife, at her family home, named White Haven. Today, that home commemorates their lives and loving partnership against the turbulent backdrop of the nineteenth century. Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site consists of 9.65 acres of land. The grounds feature several hundred trees and are a haven for a variety of wildlife such as raccoon, woodchuck, rabbit, squirrel, red fox, and an assortment of birds.

The setting was so beautiful. I was on a ranger led tour and I think they did a fine job of representing the slaves’ stories here which is important considering this is a former plantation. The museum in the horse barn definitely took a very pro Grant angle on some issues, like his drinking, so take some of the info in with a grain of salt. There’s also supposed to be a stellar bike path here as well.

Shockingly wonderful! This is one of the best historical stops you can make. The house tour is not to be missed. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. I visited while there was several summer camps happening but never had my tour interrupted or was crowded by campers.

We started the morning here and it turned out to be an awesome 90 minute stop. Good video, great guided tour, and the staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They have a Junior ranger program my son enjoyed. My 2 year old got bored earlier than the other 2, but the wife and I really enjoyed it and learned a ton too.
