Unconditional Surrender Grant ~ Our 18th President

I was born in Ohio and went to school at West Point Academy.  

I was a talented Union general in the Civil War.

  When I became president, I focused efforts on Civil War reconstruction and creating the Transcontinental Railroad.  

During my presidency, the Gold Market collapsed.  

I was known for being involved in many scandals.  

I died in 1885 and was buried next to my wife in Manhattan.
