Traveling Exhibit for the Bicentennial of Ulysses S. Grant's Birth

Traveling exhibit about Ulysses S. Grant’s life sponsored by the Missouri Humanities Council.

This exhibit is organized by reference to the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, composed by the dying ex-President in 1884-85. Of interest to all Missourians: our own Mark Twain was the prime mover behind Grant’s Memoirs. This is just one of the stories you will uncover as you explore the exhibit that you are about to enter.

Author and Speaker, Greg Wolk, available for presentation on the Civil War and Ulysses S. Grant


Forged in Missouri: Ulysses Grant and the Show-Me State

Grant! was best known for leading Union forces to victory during the American Civil War and serving as a two-term president during the Reconstruction Era, his connection to the Show-Me State is often overlooked. Author Greg Wolk will explore Grant’s military career in Missouri, including interactions with his one-time commanding officer, Gen. John C. Fremont, conflict with Gen. Jeff Thompson of the Missouri State Guard and more, shedding light on this complex 19th century figure and his remarkable legacy.
