Ulysses S. Grant was a complicated figure in American history. General Grant was many things: a kind man who held his wife's hand while he prepared for battle, a generous man who allowed his enemies to surrender with honor, a brilliant battle-strategist, a long-rumored alcoholic, and the 18th president of the United States of America. Grant, who was so popular and famous in life, is still somehow an enigma to us today.
