Inscription
From November 1864 through March 1865, Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant lived in this modest cabin. From here he directed Union armies in the climactic final campaigns of the war and hosted some of the notable figures of the era: President and Mrs. Lincoln, Major General William T. Sherman, Secretary of State William Seward, and Secretary of War Edwin Stanton.

This was one of 22 cabins that stood on the Eppes property. After the war, Grant's cabin was moved to Philadelphia, where it remained on display for 116 years. In 1981, the National Park Service returned the cabin to City Point and reassembled it on its original site. About ten percent of the structure is original. It is one of the few vestiges of the Union occupation of City Point.
