President Grant is born Today

April 27, 1822
Ulysses S. Grant, Civil War leader and 18th president of the United States, is born on this day in 1822.

We have many books about Ulysses Grant life (921 Grant) and his time in the Civil War (973.7)..

You may also enjoy "Ghosts of Galena" (133.1 Watson). Grant lived in Galena before the war and a little afterwards. His home is still there.
