Just off of U.S. Route 52 at Point Pleasant, Ohio, is the humble home where Ulysses S. Grant was born on April 27, 1822.
He went on to attend West Point, serve as President Lincoln's General in the Civil War, then become President of the United States.
This is a return visit to Grant's birthplace on our recent mini road trip through Ohio. We also stopped here was in 2005. Click here to see my images of the inside of the home.
