A Visit to Grant’s Cottage – by S. McBride

   Grant’s Cottage State Historic Site on Mount McGregor, just a few miles north of Saratoga Springs, is a fascinating piece of history right here in our own back yard.  It is the site where Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th president of the United States, spent the last 37 days of his life, dying from cancer just three days after completing his memoirs.
