New view on President Grant
What do you know about Ulysses S. Grant? If you’d asked me that before my visit to St. Louis, I would have said: “President of the United States, Commanding General of the Union Army, buried in Grant’s Tomb and — a drunkard.” Three out of four is not bad, but as history, I pretty much have to give myself a D.
On previous visits to the Gateway City, Jack and I have visited Grant’s Farm — an area attraction owned by Anheuser-Busch. In the midst of the 281 acres stands a small log cabin — once the home of Ulysses S. Grant. Somehow, I never noticed the road just outside Grant’s Farm boundaries that leads to the Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site, a property of the National Park Service.
