History for Kids – Today is Ulysses S. Grant’s birthday

Happy birthday 18th president. I also mean Ulysses S. Grant. He was our 18th president. He was born on April 27th, 1822, in Point Pleasant, Ohio. His 1st vice president was Schuyler Colfax and his 2nd was Henry Wilson. Ulysses died on July 23rd, 1885, in Mount McGregor, New York. He was the  General of Union in the Civil War. Some people thought Ulysses should run for a 3rd term as president. He also wrote a book about his life. He was president from 1869 – 1877. He got the nickname ” Unconditional Surrender.” His wife was Julia Grant. He helped the North win the war. He left the army in 1854. He also hated the sight of blood. This guy is so amazing because he helped our country so much to win the Civil War. He was a great general and a honest man.
