Cornell University Collection of Political Americana, Cornell University Library

When Ulysses S. Grant lived at White Haven in the 1850s, he was one of roughly twenty to thirty individuals who lived on the property at that time. This number includes Ulysses and Julia Grant's growing family of four children, Julia's parents and siblings, and numerous enslaved African Americans who lived in separate log cabins on the property (there were thirty enslaved laborers owned by Julia's father, Frederick Dent, in 1850 and seven in 1860). Learn more about some of these individuals below.
