2017 U.S. Grant Birthday Celebration

The annual U.S. Grant Birthday Celebration took place on Sat. April 29 at Pt. Pleasant, OH.  The Camp has a table with recruiting material and is always there to answer questions about the Sons, the Civil War, and Civil War ancestry.  The event started 10am and once the weather cleared up it was a beautiful afternoon.

U. S. Grant’s birth place is located on US 52 east of New Richmond. It is a basic one room house, as seen below. It is a neat place to visit. If you have never been there, it is something that you must do. Richard Davis, Jim Houston, Kerry Landon, Bill West and Woody Cook were all there to answer any questions. Woody had part of his Civil War collection out and available for viewing.
