About the US Grant Camp No. 101

TThe Ulysses S. Grant Camp of Detroit was named for the ranking Union Civil War general and 18th President of the United States. Although not born or raised in Detroit, Michigan General Grant did spend some time living here during 1849 when he was a lieutenant in the Army. The house he resided in still stands on the grounds of the Michigan State Fair in Detroit.

Meetings: The Camp will be meeting quarterly on the third Saturday of the month at 1:00 PM at the Plymouth Historical Museum located just two blocks north of downtown Plymouth at 155 South Main Street, Plymouth, MI 48170. Their phone number is (734) 455-8940, and they are open Wed. through Sun. from 1-4 PM. We hope to see you there. Further information can be found at the following website:

Activities: The Camp participates in several community activities within the City of Detroit each year, which provides educational and living history to the public.

  • Every Memorial Day for the past 13 years our Camp has hosted a remembrance ceremony in full uniform for all veterans of all wars at the Civil War graves sites at historic Elmwood Cemetery. The Memorial Day Ceremony is at 11:00 AM and is open to the public and all are welcome.
  • Historic Fort Wayne in Detroit, Michigan conducts a Civil War Days each year the end of July, in which we have set up a recruiting tent and provided information on our organization, as well as, the Civil War.
  • When applicable we provide Headstone Rededication Ceremonies for the ancestors of Civil War veterans who have no grave marker.
  • This was the first year we participated in the Civil War Days at Richards Middle School in Fraser, Michigan. It was a wonderful event, which included the participation from the faculty and 8th grade students.
  • Meetings in Plymouth should also open up several new opportunities for events and activities within the community.
