Grant's Headquarters at City Point

Grant's Headquarters at City Point

From June 1864 to April 1865, General Ulysses S. Grant directed the 10-month siege of Petersburg from City Point. During this period, City Point served as a supply center for 100,000 Union soldiers and became one of the busiest seaports in the world. Tour includes a 15-minute video and a visit to the parlor, library, Grant's cabin, and outbuildings.
