This is the 4th in another series of video blog posts where my family is exploring the Gettysburg Battlefield. As you know our family goal is to learn something new every time we go to Gettysburg and this time we learned several new things.
In this video Sarah is talking about the fighting on Culp’s Hill and about General George Greene
Here is a photo of General Greene:
If you are like me and enjoy exploring the Gettysburg battlefield (especially with kids), I highly recommend JD’s book: The Complete Gettysburg Guide
Here is a video of my daughter Sarah (aka @civilwarsallie) learning about the Soldier’s National Cemetery in Gettysburg
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
