In October 1848, Grant returned to the Army and was ordered to report to Detroit–this  time, however, he took Julia with him. When they arrived in Michigan, Grant discovered  that his orders had been changed and that he needed to report to Sackets Harbor, New  York, on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario. Grant protested, but the order to allow him  to stay in Detroit did not arrive until Grant and his wife had reached Sackets Harbor,  where they wintered. The two became a model household in camp: Julia set up a nice living arraignment and  Grant began giving her an allowance to hire a cook–a sign of prestige that Julia  desperately wanted. However, she returned home to St. Louis soon after the couple  arrived back in Detroit in the spring of 1849. Julia was pregnant and wanted to have the  child with her family. On May 30, 1850, Julia gave birth to Frederick Dent Grant, who

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
