Ulysses S. Grant Home Page

Ulysses S. Grant Home Page A look at the life of Ulysses S. Grant that includes many photographs, articles and information on the varied aspects of his life - including the Civil War, early life and presidency.

From the site:

This website contains 200 pages of images, text and information on Ulysses S. Grant. Grant was an outstanding military figure and the savior of the Union during the Civil War, as well as the 18th President of the United States from 1869-77. Unfortunately, Grant has been profoundly misunderstood in popular culture. Often portrayed as a slovenly drunkard, he was actually a modest and moral man, uncommonly devoted to his wife and children. He was an author of unusual ability and his Memoirs are widely regarded as one of the great books written in the English language. He was also a complex individual with uncommon virtues. We invite you to explore Ulysses S. Grant, a man whose abilities are still misunderstood and underrated. His accomplishments and courage were rare, his personal integrity unmatched. The information here will start you on an odyssey in discovering Grant as a General, as a human being and as a great American.
