General Grant

Fulton Journal
July 13, 1885

But little has been done in Fulton in way of public observance of the death of General Grant. Two flags were draped at half mast and Dana's store decorated with crape and flags. J.W. Broadhead arranged one of his show windows with mourning goods and a portrait of Grant heavily draped in crape was placed in the center. The Postoffice building was not decorated in memory of the old soldier.
