Remembering Ulysses S. Grant’s courage and leadership at the Civil War Memorial.  Just learned that this wasn’t his real name; it was an error made by the Congressman who recommended him for West Point and he never corrected it.  His real name was Hiram Ulysses Grant.

As the country battles the COVID-19 crisis this Memorial Day, how about this quote:  “I believe . . . that if our country ever comes into trial again, young men will spring up equal to the occasion, and if one fails, there will be another to take his place.” ― Ulysses S. Grant

Happy Memorial Day!
