For enthusiasts of early banjo

In the late 1870s, former president U,S Grant stayed a night in the Manor, the bed he slept In is still here. The old photos and sketches are of Cairo and Fort Prentiss (Fort Defiance), at the very tip of Southern Illinois, The fort was in use from 1861 to 1864. Brig Gen U,S Grant Had headquarters nearby during the Civil War, the same desk and chair that Grant used in his headquarters is in another museum, The Old Customs House, there are many other original relics from the fort and the Civil war there in the customs house.
