Ulysses S. Grant and Loudoun County Quakers

“During all of the trying winter of 1860-1, when the Southerners were so defiant that they would not allow within their borders the expression of a sentiment hostile to their views, it was a brave man indeed who could stand up and proclaim his loyalty to the Union.” – Ulysses S. Grant (1822-1885) quoted from his Memoirs (Chapter 16)
