I'm looking forward to enjoying the forums and learning so much more about President Grant. Thanks for this website! It will be like one-stop shopping for those, like me, who respect his legacy and want to know as much as possible about his incredible life.

Thank you, Ben for your services and for being the moderator on this Forum. grant has had enough mud-slinging in his life time to where we need to clean him off and place him back on the highest pedestal again. this website will definitely help out with bringing information and people together to help carry on grant's legacy for generations to come.

    Just a little bit about me, I've always enjoyed history since a young age and hasn't left me after all these years. My interest has evolved around the civil war due to the dynamics and change of events that had an ever lasting effect on our country. My full-time job is in public safety as firefighter/emt. i offer my volunteer services at the grant cottage at mount mcgregor in wilton, ny. i appreciate the history that surrounds me in upstate ny and try to take what ever free time i have by exploring and learning further about it. a long the way, i enjoy meeting new people and getting a chance to learn what they have to share. i'm a laid back person and easy-going once you get to know me. thank you for your interest in history and especially to one of the greatest men that have ever lived: us Grant.
