ULYSSES S. GRANT This 2½x4 sepia-toned photograph features a bust view of President Ulysses S. Grant in military uniform Photograph Unsigned: a 2½x4 carte-de-visite photograph of the President of the United States. Carte-de-visites were an early type of photograph patented in Paris, France. They were printed on a thin piece of paper and then adhered to a thick paper card, just like this image. Ulysses S. Grant (1822-1885) was a United States military general and President of the United States. After attending the United States Military Academy and graduating ranked 21st out of 39 students, he was assigned to the 4th Infantry Regiment. Grant served in the Mexican-American War and the American Civil War. With the Union Army in 1863, Grant led the campaign to take Vicksburg, Mississippi, a key city along the Mississippi River that the United States had to take to gain control of the flow of goods and information. His success led to his promotion to Commanding General of the United States Army. During the Reconstruction Era, Grant and President Andrew Johnson frequently butted heads over how the rebellious Confederate states should be welcomed back into the United States. He was elected the 18th President of the United States in 1869 and served two terms. During his tenure, the Fifteenth Amendment (which allowed black men to vote) was passed. He attempted to protect the civil rights of African-Americans throughout his tenure. After his time in the Oval Office was ended, Reconstruction was terminated as part of the Compromise of 1877 related to the election of Rutherford B. Hayes as his successor. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
