Description:

The Ohio History Connection's mission is to spark discovery of Ohio history! We help people connect with Ohio’s past to understand the present and create a better future. With over 180 staff members, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of partners in historical societies, local history groups and local and state government, the Ohio History Connection champions all Ohio history, including the 50+ historic sites in the Society's network throughout Ohio.

The Ohio History Connection’s network of historical sites includes homes and memorials associated with US presidents such as Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, or Warren G. Harding. It includes early cultures and mound building sites such as Serpent Mound, Ft. Ancient, or Newark Earthworks. Some historic sites help visitors learn about the entrepreneurial and literary genius and diversity of Ohioans. Other historic sites in the network are nature preserves and are great places to hike and take photos such as Cedar Bog or Wahkeena.

Ulysses S. Grant was the eighteenth president of the United States. Born April 27, 1822 in Point Pleasant, Ohio, he received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York in 1839. Grant graduated in 1843 and stationed near St. Louis, Mo. where he met Julia Boggs Dent. They married in 1848. Grant served in the Mexican War (1846-1848) and then at forts in Oregon and California until resigning from the Army in 1854. After failing in farming and real estate, he moved to Galena, Illinois to join his father and brothers in a leather goods business. At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 he helped recruit, equip, and drill troops in Galena and then accompanied them to Springfield, where he was appointed an aide and assigned to the state Adjutant General's office. He soon was appointed Brigadier General and commander of the District of Southeast Missouri. In 1862 he won the first major Union victory at Fort Donelson. In March 1864, Grant was appointed Lieutenant General and was given command of the armies of the United States. On April 2, 1865, General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, ending the Civil War. After the war Grant was appointed General of the Armies of the United States, and then Secretary of War. In 1868 he was elected President of the United States and in 1872 he won reelection. He moved to New York City after leaving the White House. Shortly before he died Grant composed two volumes of personal recollections of the Civil War. Grant passed away on July 23, 1885.
