FOLLOWING HIS VISIT, SCHUMER SECURES GRANT COTTAGE’S OFFICIAL DESIGNATION AS A NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK

Following his advocacy and a visit directly to Saratoga County in 2019, Schumer released the following statement regarding Grant Cottage’s designation as a National Historic Landmark:

Senator Schumer said, “Finally, the Grant Cottage in Saratoga County, where one of our greatest generals and an influential presidents wrote one of the finest pieces of American literature – while terminally ill – will become a National Historic Landmark.  I was proud to have gone in person to push for this hidden gem to receive resources from the National Park Service. Ulysses S. Grant is having a deserved resurgence in appreciation lately, and this well-deserved distinction will encourage more people to visit this beautiful spot.”
