U.S. Grant Birthday Weekend
April 12 - April 14
Each year the museum celebrates the birthday of Galena’s favorite citizen, Civil War hero and our 18th president, Ulysses S. Grant. Did you know that U.S. Grant lived in Galena prior to the Civil War and ran for president while living in Galena? Learn more about his life here during our annual Grant birthday celebration, which includes a state dinner on Saturday, April 13. We’re busy planning the full weekend of festivities for 2019.
