This is a 29 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Civil War - Key Leaders -Union - Ulysses S Grant. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Ulysses Grant commanded the victorious Union army during the American Civil War, 1861-1865, and served as the 18th U.S. President from 1869 to 1877. An Ohio native, Grant graduated from West Point and fought in the Mexican-American War, 1846-1848.
During the Civil War, Grant, an aggressive and determined leader and was given command of all the U.S. armies. As President, a primary focus of Grant’s administration was Reconstruction, and he worked to reconcile the North and South while also attempting to protect the civil rights of newly freed black slaves.
While Grant was personally honest, some of his associates were corrupt and his administration was tarnished by various scandals. After retiring, Grant invested in a brokerage firm that went bankrupt, costing him his life savings. He spent his final days penning his memoirs, which were published the year he died and proved a critical and financial success.
Ultimately, Grant remains somewhat of an enigma in American history. He was such a successful general that his failings as President seem hard to comprehend. He was a natural leader on the battlefield but was not an especially effective leader of his country.
In the areas of Native American policy, civil service reform, and African American rights, he took steps that few had attempted. He also executed a successful foreign policy and was responsible for improving Anglo-American relations.
