General Ulysses S. Grant

COMING SOON

General Ulysses S. Grant is remembered as the "Hero of Appomottax", the Union General who accepted the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and brought the American Civil War to an end. He served as Regimental Quartermaster during the Mexican War and retired from the army in July of 1854. At the start of the Civil War, Grant started a second military career by recruiting state volunteers. He successfully drilled rebellious Illinois volunteers into a fighting unit responsible for taking out several Confederate guerilla groups and was promoted to brigadier general. Despite high casualty rates, his strategy to take Vicksburg via the south gave President Lincoln cause to comment, "I cannot spare this man, he fights!" In 1863 Grant was promoted to lieutenant general and was given command over the union armies. After driving Lee's forces out of Petersburg and Richmond, Lee surrendered to Grant at the Appotomax Courthouse on April 9, 1865. After the war, Grant was promoted to full general and oversaw the military's role in Reconstruction. His war career led him into the Presidency in 1868. After serving two terms in the White House, he moved to New York to write his memoirs. He died just one week after they were completed.

Our Grant stands 11 1/2" tall and includes an authentic officer's slouch hat, frock coat, shirt, dress sash, breeches and boots.
