Julia Boggs (Dent) Grant, 18th First Lady of the United States, born January 26, 1826, St. Louis, Missouri. Julia is unlovely, but Grant never noticed her imperfections. She provides him an emotional haven from the frustrations of "real life." She was 22 when they marry and remains protective and adoring of her husband, whom she addressed with a large assortment of nicknames, including Dodo, Dode, Victor and Dudy. They are faithful to one another and don't engage in the modern propensity of "straying." This is the integral relationship in Grant's life.
High School: Misses Mauros Boarding School, St. Louis, MO (1843)
22 Aug 1848 Julia Boggs Dent married Ulysess Simpson Grant in St Louis, St. Louis, Missouri, USA 
Husband: Ulysses S. Grant (US President, b. 1822, dated 1844-48, m. 22-Aug-1848, d. 1885)
The Grants had four healthy children: 
Although Ulysses’ army duty took them to the far corners of the nation, Julia returned home to White Haven for the birth of their first child and after the birth of Ulysses Jr. in Ohio. Their last two children were born at the White Haven estate after Grant’s resignation from the army in 1854. Julia’s love for her children was constant, and she always made sure to broaden their horizons: through education, the boys’ accompanying Ulysses at the front during the war, the children’s attendance at White House social functions, and their inclusion on the Grants’ around-the-world tour.
Julia penned her own autobiography entitled [[The Personal Memoirs of Julia Dent Grant]] before her death. It was not published until 1975.
