(4-05) Ringgold's Whitman House is famous for its connection to Union General and future President of the United States Ulysses S. Grant. The house was built in 1863 by William L. Whitman, a local merchant. Grant used the house as his headquarters following the Battle of Ringgold and offered to pay Mrs. Whitman $50 in U.S. currency. She declined and asked for Confederate money. Grant was said to have remarked, "She certainly isn't whipped yet"
