Cincinnati in Hamilton County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Burnet House
On March 20, 1864, Generals Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman met in Parlor A to coordinate their campaigns against Richmond, VA and Atlanta, GA, eventually leading to Union victory in the Civil War. After the war, Parlor A was used by local veterans for the Grand Army of the Republic meetings.
The register of the hotel bears the names of Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, James Buchanan, Stephen A. Douglas, Salmon P. Chase, and Horace Greeley. The hotel stopped operations on July 15, 1926, and was razed the same year.
