A man for a nation in turmoil
In the Civil War, General Grant saved the Union and helped free the slaves. In Reconstruction, President Grant helped rebuild the South and stood up for civil rights. Today, the story of this great and good man can inspire Americans to finish the job that he started to unite America with justice and fair play for all.
Americans long ranked Grant with Washington and Lincoln as one of the nation’s three greatest leaders.
What Contemporaries Said about Grant
A man too broad for prejudice, too humane to despise the humblest, too great to be small at any point. In him the Negro found a protector, the Indian a friend, a vanquished foe a brother, an imperiled nation a savior.
Notwithstanding the fact that he talks so well, it is plain he has more brains than tongue. He is one of the most remarkable men I have ever met. He does not seem to be aware of his powers.

Quotes by Grant
