Following Ulysses S. Grant's victorious
command of the Union troops and
the end of the Civil War,
he decided to settle down, get married
and build a cabin and farm
on the outskirts of St. Louis, Missouri.
You can visit his original cabin, White Haven,
on the estate of Grant's Farm in St. Louis.
Although more a "vision of green,"
White Haven is open for tours daily.
Grant chose to own many parcels of land
throughout the state of Missouri.
