U. S. Grant

Today, we offer a selection of our prints of Union General and 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. Grant is best known for his control of the western theater during the Civil War and for forcing the surrender of the Confederacy at the Appomattox Court House in April of 1865. His presidency during the tumultuous and economically strained years of the Reconstruction was marred with political corruption and poor cabinet member selections, leading many political historians to rank his presidency among one of the worst in  American history. Nevertheless, during his two presidential terms, Grant made efforts that few had attempted before him, especially in the areas of African American rights, Native American policy, and civil service reform.

Below are several portraits and prints we have of Grant. Click on any print to view it in a larger size. Clicking on the first print allows you to view the prints in slideshow mode as well.
