Ulysses S. Grant

A picture of the author Ulysses S. Grant

Ulysses S. Grant (1822 - 1885) served as the 18th President of the United States and was Commanding General of the United States Army during the American Civil War (1864-1869). Grant implemented post-war Reconstruction, served as President for two terms to protect African-American citizenship, attempted to remove Confederate nationalism, and supported the country's industrial growth, helping to unite the country after the Civil War. H.A. Lewis remarked: "His success seems to have been the outgrowth of hard study and ability to perform the most exhaustive labor without fatigue."

In addition to his autobiography, Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant featured here, we offer several stories about Ulysses S. Grant in American History. You might also enjoy reading Theodore Roosevelt's stories, General Grant and the Vicksburg Campaign. For more, visit Civil War Stories.
