Description

Photograph of Julia Dent Grant, wife of Civil War general Ulysses S. Grant, taken at the beginning of the war, ca. 1861. The couple met in Missouri in 1844, when Grant was stationed with Dent's brother at the United States Army base at Jefferson Barracks. Within one year, the couple was secretly engaged, as Julia's father, Frederick Dent, initially opposed the marriage due to Grant's lower economic status. Soon, Mr. Dent relented, but the United States had entered into the U.S.-Mexican War, further postponing the marriage. With the war's conclusion, Dent and Grant were married on August 22, 1848.
