I think most of us only know about General Grant from the history books about the Civil War. It is nice to have a place to learn more about him as a person and how he lived. They have done a great job here and are very friendly. I wish we would have taken the time for the house tour, but they were expecting a school group, so we chose to skip it. We also somehow missed the movie, but we did walk around the grounds and museum exhibits. Loved the photos of the family and the quotes from Julia Grant. If you are into Presidential history, this is a don't miss and it's free.
