In honor of Ulysses S. Grant’s 200th birthday, The National Stars and Stripes Museum and Library will be hosting a traveling exhibit from the Missouri Humanities Council for the month of December which highlights Grant’s connections to Missouri.
The “Ulysses Grant’s Missouri” exhibit tells the story of the General and President through his own words. It includes unique stories and images from Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, composed as he was dying in 1884-85. Missourians will be interested to learn that 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.
This special exhibit will be at the museum from December 1, 2022 to December 30, 2022. The museum is open to the public on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 10am to 4pm; and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. Admission to the museum and the exhibit is free.
