#18 Ulysses S. Grant (1869-1877)

The eighteenth president of the United States: Ulysses S Grant.

Grant was a civil war hero, and during his presidency fought for the rights of African Americans, winning passage of the fifteenth amendment.

Even though many historians rate him as one of the worst presidents, anyone who so tenaciously persecuted the KKK is alright with me!
