|Personal Fact of Ulysses S. Grant|
Ulysses S. Grant was a U.S. general and commander of the Union armies who went on to serve as the 18th President of the United States (1869-77). He played a very active role as an army officer during the later years of the American Civil War and worked in close collaboration with President Abraham Lincoln to defeat the Confederates following a very difficult battle.
Born as the son of a businessman, he was expected to follow his father into his tannery business. But since he displayed no interest in the business, his father made him enter the United States Military Academy at West Point. However, he did not perform well there and earned only average grades though he was good in mathematics and geology.
He proved himself to be exceptionally skilled at handling horses and gained a reputation as a proficient horseman. Following his graduation, he fought in the Mexican-American War and retired from army life. Post his retirement he tried his hands at a number of businesses but failed to find success. When the American Civil War erupted, he returned to his army career and impressed President Lincoln with his abilities. Eventually Grant entered politics and served as the president for two consecutive terms.
