Cherry Mansion, located in Savannah, Tenn., is where Union Gen. U.S. Grant was on the morning of April 6, 1862, when the Battle of Shiloh erupted up the river. Grant and his staff got on a steamer and headed to the fighting. The home is now a private residence and is open several times a year for tours.
