Hi, Here is another acrostic poem. This time it is about Julia Grant, the wife of the 18th President Ulysses S. Grant.
Julia Grant was born at White House Plantation in St. Louis, Missouri
U. S. Grant proposed to her several times times before she said yes
Lonely without Ulysses Grant
In 1869, she entered the White House to begin, “the happiest period of her life”
Attended 1897 dedication of Grant’s tomb in New York City
Grant’s had 3 sons and a daughter
Received the position of 1st Lady
A family marriage held at the White House
Next to her husband’s grave
The 1st First Lady to write a memoir
