We ended up with beautiful weather and a good excuse to party....Meme Susie's birthday (my mother-in-law) so we headed to St. Louis for a quick overnight trip. The other day, I posted about our first day at the zoo. The second day we woke up and headed to Ulysses S. Grant home.
According to the National Park Service:
Ulysses S. Grant 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.
You can learn more about this site by visiting HERE. For those of you who are familiar with St. Louis, it is directly across from Grant's Farm. (Another interesting place not just because of free beer tasting either!)
