Julia Grant was the wife of the eighteenth President of the United States and the nineteenth coin to be struck in the First Spouse series. This is the second of four coins to be issued in 2011. Julia Dent met Ulysses Grant at her family's plantation, White Haven. Ulysses Grant, aged 26, married Julia Dent, aged 22, on August 22, 1848 at White Haven plantation. General Grant won decisive victories at Shiloh in April 1862, at Vicksburg in July 1863, and at Chattanooga in November 1863. Julia was beside him as he rose to be one of the most famous generals in American history and, ultimately, the 18th President.
The reverse represents a scene of Julia Dent and Ulysses S. Grant riding horses at White Haven, her family's plantation during their courtship.
