The USA Today has a short interview with General Grant’s great-great grandson.  Dietz is an author, senior curator, and curator of decorative arts at the Newark Museum in New Jersey.  I have been to the Newark Museum several times over the years and can attest that it is one of the finest museums in the nation.  Sadly many don’t visit because of the location.  The best way to experience the Newark Museum is to visit the site and then have dinner in the Ironbound District.  Both are within walking distance of Newark Penn Station.

An added bonus is the nearby Gutzon Borglum statue of Lincoln.  An audience in the thousands watched Theodore Roosevelt dedicate Borglum’s statue on May 30, 1911.
