This is a no-fee national historic site. Definitely watch the video prior to a tour to get a real feel of the man and his struggles during these times. Good learning opportunity for all.

There are several Grant historic sites. The time period for his house is pre-civil war. The house itself is interesting enough but the museum did an excellent job of deconstructing Grant, looking at both his strengths and reputed weaknesses and discussing them head on. Well...More
