'Great', meaning highly successful - yes.If you mean 'Did he possess the quality of human greatness?' - no.
A simple character who was good at simplifying problems.A good judge of soldiers.Steady, unflappable, well-suited to a long war of attrition.
It was one of his dreams and he followed it
Ulysses S. Grant married Julia Boggs Dent in 1848
Ulysses S. Grant attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.
A plain man. Stoic. Calm. Unflappable. Informal style.
Grant's birth name was "Hiram Ulysses Grant." When Grant was nominated for West Point, the application was made in the name of "Ulysses S. Grant" (nobody knows why this mistake was made). Grant adopted this name while at West Point, and was given the nickname "Sam" (U.S. = "Uncle Sam"). His mother's...
The 18th President of the United States was Ulysses S. Grant from March 4, 1869 to March 4, 1877
He didn't. When Hiram Ulysses Grant entered West Point a mistake was made and he was enrolled under the name of Ulysses Simpson Grant. He kept the name and later became known as unconditional surrender Grant or U S Grant.
His opponent in 1868 was Horatio Seymour from New York. In 1872 Horace Greeley, also from New York, ran against him. (Greeley died after the popular election but before the electoral college voted, so it might have been legally interesting if Greeley had won. ) Victoria Woodhull also ran in 1872,...
Ulysses Grant never heard of soccer, for the excellent reason that it did not yet exist. Civil War soldiers played a game that had evolved called baseball. A Union general, Abner Doubleday, wrote down the rules and is often credited with inventing the game, but just made a list of the existing rules...
He was a great leader and wonderful man of God.

Fort HenryFort DonelsonVicksburg
Probably not. He died of throat cancer. Plus, he was a general.
He fought for the North or the Union army
It wasn't a town.More like a hamlet - Appomattox Court House.
Technically, No he did not "Stop" the Ku Klux Klan. Though in 1871, he signed the "Ku Klux Klan Act"
By writing his memoirs - which did indeed sell very well, and deservedly so.He was dying of throat cancer, and struggled to finish the book, just days before his death.
Before the war, he was a demobbed Army Officer (possibly discharged for drunkenness) who tried farming, without success, and had to ask his brother for a job as a clerk in his store.
A Northerner, classified further as a Northwesterner.
The ten-month Siege of Petersburg
He did just that by taking the surrender of Robert E. Lee, and allowing Sherman's march across Georgia and he Carolinas, which ended the war.During Reconstruction, he supported amnesty for former Confederates, civil rights for blacks, and troops to be sent South to control the KKK.
After being forbidden to pursue the enemy, he was obliged to fight them where they had regrouped, at Shiloh Church, near Corinth.
while he was in the civil war it was a pickle soaked in vinegar
i think i am having problems
He was the Union CommanderIMPROVEMENT In the early stage of the Civil War, as a Brigadier General and commander of the outpost of Cairo (Illinois), he learnt that the Confederate had occupied Columbus (Kentucky).Therefore the neutrality of Kentucky had been violated. He therefore took the initiative...
It only happens in the dreams of those who save their old Confederate money in the hope that The South Will Rise Again.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, AND John Quincy Adams.
March 1864 - at last!Lincoln said "I can't spare this man. He fights."
I dont know, but I have the set. In multiple sizes too. What you think its worth?
It was Appomattox Court House, near Petersburg, Virginia.
Julia Dent, sister of one of his fellow-cadets at West Point.It was an exceptionally close marriage, surviving long periods of separation, and they had four children.The story goes that she could not get along with Mrs. Lincoln, and this is one version of why the Grants were not in the President's...
US Grant served in the Mexican War as a quartermaster, taking partin several battles including Monterrey and Vera Cruz, and twicebrevetted for bravery.
He died from throat cancer.
His father asked a senator he knew to fill out the paperwork so Ulysses could go to West Point. Because this senator didn't take time to ask he wrote Ulysses's name down wrong as Ulysses S. Grant. His real name was Hiram Ulysses Grant.
President: Ulysses Simpson Grant (1822 - 1885) Term: March 4, 1869 - March 4, 1877 Background: Grant was born in Point Pleasant, Clermont County, Ohio in a log cabin. His parents were Jesse Root Grant who was from an English decent and a tanner from Pennsylvania, and Hannah Simpson Grant. Grant...
idk i herd that he drunk and i really dont know i was hoping to find a answer myself im related to him but i dont know
Yes.He was appointed General-in-Chief of all the Union armies in March 1864, displacing his old boss, Henry Halleck, who was demoted to Chief-of-Staff. Despite the long feud between the two Generals, Halleck recognised Grant's abilities and supported him well in the last year of hostilities.
Ulysses S. Grant was President when the nation experienced it's first "Black Friday" Wall Street crisis on September 24, 1869. The crash was caused by two industrialists, Fiske and Gould, who conspired to corner the market on gold.
No.The book is a military memoir, more-or-less a battle diary, reproducing certain letters and reports, but no speeches. The action ends in 1865, four years before he became President.Grant was not a great speechifier anyway. But you could regard the memoirs as a kind of speech in themselves.
Grant was president from 1869-1877.The year 1885 was the year of his death from throat cancer, probably brought on by stress, following a scandalous fraud - not involving him - at a bank of which he was a director.In his last weeks, he was struggling to write his memoirs, so that his family would...
Grant died of throat cancer and was buried at the Famous New York mausoleum, Grant's Tomb.
Because he was a popular war-hero who had saved the country. He was also a man of shrewd judgment and trustworthiness.
Unflappability.Drunkenness.Special tenderness to his family.
He liberated the Mississippi (siege of Vicksburg), which ended the war in the West.He then saved the Army of the Cumberland from starvation at Chattanooga.His credibility was such that he was appointed General-in-Chief of all the Union armies in March 1864, replacing his old boss Henry Halleck, who...
From 1860 to 1861, Ulysses S. Grant lived with his family in Galena, Illinois. He later moved to Springfield and Cairo in 1861 during the Civil War. In 1865, after the end of the war, he moved back to Galena.
Robert e lee was born in January of 1807 and Ulysses s grant was born in April of 1822. So during the civil war, Ulysses s Grant was younger.
The impact he had on American history was that he found a way to end the war...The general before him stopped attacking the South instead of just ending it...The Grant came in had the South running scared and kept going and going at the South until they surrendered
No, Grant lived many years. He was twice elected President of the United States and retired.Perhaps the question refers to Robert E Lee, who died 5 years after the end of the Civil War.
Liberating the Mississippi, and eventually taking the surrender of Robert E.Lee in Virginia, which ended the war.
He liked a drink or two - and if was one too many, Sherman used to cover for him.
Ulysses S. Grant was the name put on his paperwork put into West Point. (The senator that put them in didn't take the time to ask it seems).
To Sherman, he said "Make Georgia howl!"
grant did get married to Julia boggs dent and had four kids.
No, HE DIDNT LOSE HIS LEG! He might of been injured but no limbs had to be amputated. Look up "Ulysses S. GRant, president"
haha who ever goes on this is people that need help with essays.
Ulysses S. Grant was the name put on his paperwork put into West Point. (The senator that put them in didn't take the time to ask it seems). Grant apparently did dislike the name ,since he did not ask that it be corrected ,and it was made part of his permanent record.
I prefer Ulysses S. Grant.
Supposedly it was Simpson.Others say there was no 'S' - it was inserted unofficially when he was nicknamed 'Unconditional Surrender'.His first name was actually Hiram.
you spell the name sideways along the edge like below... then you just add words or phrases that start with that letterU L YSSESSGRANT
Ulysses S. Grant is on the north's side.
Yes. He was a pretty good President. He was fair to the South and pushed for black rights. He remained popular, was elected twice and considered seriously for a third term. He was honest and worked hard to be a good leader. Some of his appointments turned out to be crooks . He tended to...
Hiram Ulysses Grant. It is frequently said that Grant's middle name was "Simpson." It was not. His middle name was "Ulysses" and he admitted that the "S" in his name stood for nothing.
one of his friends was Abraham Lincoln
Grant received his first commission in 1843, served in the Mexican War and resigned his commission in 1854. He returned to the army for the the Civil War and served from 1861 to 1869 when took office as President.
Yes, in fact, he did! Ulysses S. Grant was a favorite general of Abraham Lincoln at the time, and Grant had no problem taking charge and showing the South who's boss. What was so great about Ulysses was that he was one of the most successful generals in his time. Ulysses S. Grant became the 18th...
his real name was condom suck

"Ulysses don't scare worth-a-damn!" went the saying. He was a man totally without nerves, quite happy to go on chatting or writing reports while shells exploded all round him.The only time he got nervous was in November-December 1864 when George Thomas refused to be rushed into launching the Battle...
No. He'd been retired for about eight years.
