STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) – It was a big day for leaders at Mississippi State University as it unveiled the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library.
A standing room only crowd gathered Thursday afternoon on the school’s campus.
This is part of a $10 million expansion of the library. It features interactive digital exhibits that will help visitors get a better understanding of President Grant.
There’s also a collection of material on President Abraham Lincoln.
“One of only six in the country in terms of presidential libraries housed on a university campus,” said MSU Chief Communications Officer Sid Salter. “And we invite historians whether they’re professional or armchair to come here and see this facility.”
Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant was in attendance as well.
