Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site, St. Louis, MO Photos

The Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site preserves the home and part of the farm of Ulysses S. Grant and Julia D. Grant. This museum run by the National Park Service traces the life of this U.S. President and how Julia kept the farm running while Ulysses was away during the Civil War. The site is west of downtown St. Louis and the Jefferson Barracks military post where Grant served during the early part of his military career. Grant's Hardscrabble cabin can be seen nearby, but is not part of the National Historic Site.
