Donor Information Accession numbers and other donor information, when available, are contained at the end of each entry in brackets, such as "[gift of William K. Bixby]." Biographical Sketch The biographical information here is intended only to give major dates in Grant’s life for reference purposes. For additional information, researchers should consult the extensive biographies or other published sources. Ulysses S. Grant was born April 27, 1822, in Point Pleasant, Ohio, to Hannah Simpson and Jesse Root Grant, and was baptized Hiram Ulysses Grant. Known as Ulysses from infancy, due to a mix-up by the congressman who nominated him to West Point, he was appointed to the military academy as Ulysses Simpson Grant and the adjutant there refused to correct the error. Grant attended West Point from 1839 to 1843 and served in the Mexican War from 1844 to 1847. On August 22, 1848, he married Julia Boggs Dent, the young woman he had met while stationed at Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis, 1843-1844. Their marriage produced four children: Frederick Dent Grant (1850-1912), Ulysses Simpson Grant, II (1852-1929), Ellen Wrenshall Grant (1855-1922) and Julia Root Grant (1858-1934). Grant is best known for his Civil War military service during which he rose in rank from colonel of an Illinois regiment to command of all Union armies. Following the war, Grant served briefly as secretary of war and was elected president of the United States in 1868. He served two terms as president, until 1876. After leaving office, he settled in New York and began his memoirs, which were published posthumously in 1885 and 1886. U. S. Grant died of throat cancer on July 23, 1885. Scope and Contents The Ulysses Simpson Grant Collection is an artificial, or subject-based, collection comprising a variety of documents that have been placed in this collection over the years due to their common subject matter (i.e., Ulysses S. Grant). The Ulysses S. Grant Series includes items dated 1858-1885, and consists primarily of correspondence to and from Grant. The series includes eight documents relating to the Civil War and a few items relating to his presidency. The Grant-Dent Family Series includes items dated circa 1885–1959, and comprises material written to or by members of the Grant or Dent families. The Reference Series includes original documents that were collected because they contain information about Grant and typescript copies and reproductions of Grant-related items.
