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

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

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.

October Traveling Exhibit Location
