Grant was a total badass. He gets maligned because of his trust in the wrong people but the dude was as legit as they came.

Also maligned because people started to believe generations worth of “Lost Cause” neo-Confederate sick-head propaganda that painted him as an incompetent drunk.

Grant was a truly great American, and has been the victim of Confederate revisionist slander
