President Ulysses S. Grant

This is a nice portrait of President Ulysses S. Grant. Grant was an unknown, unsuccessful man, until he joined the army. In the Civil War, he quickly rose through the ranks, as he was one of the few Union Generals that was achieving success on the ground. Grant died on this day (July 23rd) in the year 1885.
