ULYSSES S. GRANT
Unsigned Carte de Visite featuring Grant in uniform
Carte de Visite, unsigned. Sepia, 2¼x3¾ affixed to a 2½x4 card. ULYSSES S. GRANT (1822-1885), a West Point graduate (1843), served capably in the Mexican War, but struggled in the peacetime army and left the army in 1954. A struggling shopkeeper in his home town of Galena, Illinois until returning to the colors at the outset of the Civil War, Grant rose rapidly because of his bold, offense-minded strategy (in contrast to the timidity of many Union generals). His bold campaign on the Mississippi River culminated in the capture of Vicksburg (July 1863), splitting the Confederacy in half. After another victory at Chattanooga, President Lincoln brought Grant east to confront the South's greatest General, Robert E. Lee, in the Eastern Theater. Grant's willingness to accept high casualties drew criticism, but he pushed south relentlessly, capturing Richmond and compelling Lee's surrender in April 1865. Grant proved less effective as a President (1869-1877) than as a general, enforcing civil rights laws and attacking the Ku Klux Klan but failing to curb blatant corruption among his appointees. The personally honest Grant labored to complete his (highly regarded) memoirs before his death from cancer, thereby assuring his widow's financial security. Slightly soiled. Pinhead size hole at top center. Otherwise, fine condition.
