Ulysses Grant was the greatest Union hero of the Civil War. His hard-nosed fighting style won him the nickname "Unconditional Surrender Grant. He was the author of the great Union victory at Vicksburg, which irrevocably altered the course of the war. After proving to President Abraham Lincoln that he had the courage to take the fight to the Confederates, Grant was elevated to an exalted militaryrank of General of the Army, a rank previously held only by George Washington. Incredibly popular with his men, Grant was a general the soldiers were willing to fight and die for. In a defining momentof our nation's history, he accepted Confederate General Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox, ending the Civil War.
Plus, Grant's stellar service to our country extended beyond the battlefield. In 1868, three years after the conclusion of the Civil War, Grant took advantage of his enormous popularity to wage a successful presidential campaign. At age 45, he became the youngest person ever elected. Grant went on to serve two terms as president. Notable accomplishments during his time in office included the stabilization of the post-war economy, the creation of the U.S. Department of Justice, and the development and implementation of the first Civil Service Commission.
Grant again ran for the presidency in 1880, but his bid for a third term in office fell short. He died at his Wilton, NY, cottage in 1885 after a battle with throat cancer. A true warrior to the end, Grant spent his last months fighting through the pain of his illness to complete his memoir, The Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant, which became a critical and commercial success after his death.
