1885 Grant family at Mt McGregor, NY

Family with Surgeon

Autumn is here, and unless you’re preparing for an exciting winter near the equator, or love the snow, it is a sad time knowing it is the beginning of a season of fewer days outdoors. It was the Autumn of 1884 when Ulysses Grant went to his doctor for the pain he felt in his throat. He was living in New York City at the time. For Grant, this season ushered in the work of writing his Memoirs.

Grant writing his personal Memoirs.

His last winter project lasted until his death in the summer of 1885. The above pictures taken at the cottage in Mt McGregor, New York show the Grant family during his last days.
