took a day trip to Galena, IL....here are photos of Jesse Grant's leather goods store where Ulysses clerked prior to the war. Galena is a neat little 'period' town. Just a block away from the leather goods store is the Desoto Hotel, both Lincoln and Douglas gave speeches from the balcony. Grant's home is in Galena, very modest. And in 'normal' times open for tours.
