Julie Dent Grant and General Ulysses S. Grant
While our country was at war with itself, we struggled to maintain home and family, to find normalcy. During this time of crisis, heroes sacrificed and scoundrels sold out.
AHT is privileged to share the official, as well as the little-known, stories of presidents, prisoners, and poets. We tell the tales of soldiers, slaves, and suffragists. We dramatize battlefield nurses and behind-the-scenes spies. And we bring attention to both northern Copperheads and southern scalawags. Husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers: discover the all-too-human women and men of the American Civil War.
