President Grant's Cabinet Table

Creator: Pottier & Stymus Manufacturing Co., New York, 1869.

President Grant's Cabinet met around this table every Thursday and Friday. The table has eight locking drawers, one for each Cabinet member, for the safety of important papers. The table is now in the White House Treaty Room. Many important agreements, including the Peace Treaty that ended the Spanish-American War in 1898, have been signed on this table. Recent presidents have used it in their private White House offices.
