Seen on the Reverse of the Julia Grant First Spouse Gold Coin is a representation of the time a young Julia Dent and Lieutenant Ulysses Grant spent courting: in this instance horseback riding on her family’s plantation, White Haven. Though her father initially disproved of their marriage, the young couple soon convinced him of their devotion to one another. Secretly engaged at first, they would marry until four years later; Ulysses was kept away by his military career. Throughout their time together they showed a strength together through which they saw some of the most difficult times in their own lives, and in the conflicted nation. Having lived through dire financial straits, war, a presidency, and again finding themselves bankrupt; their love and commitment outshone all their adversities. When he found that he was dying of cancer, Grant began writing his memoirs in earnest, so that he could leave Julia with royalties that would save her from poverty; he completed them and she lived comfortably for her remaining days.
