President Ulysses S. Grant - Autograph Letter Signed
A rare piece of correspondence discussing the possible meeting of two former U.S. Presidents

Description

Third-person Autograph Letter Signed (ALS), signed in the text "Genl. & Mrs. Grant", one page, lightly-lined, 5'' x 8'', no date but postmarked August 4, 1884. President Grant sends his regrets to General James Grant Wilson in response to a lunch with fellow former President Rutherford B. Hayes and his wife. Letter is accompanied by its original mailing envelope, which is also in the hand of President Grant. In Fine condition, with a couple of minor spots of soiling, and remnants of previous mounting to the verso. Ulysses S. Grant (born Hiram Ulysses Grant; April 27, 1822 – July 23, 1885) was the 18th president of the United States (1869–1877) following his success as military commander in the American Civil War. Under Grant, the Union Army defeated the Confederate military; the war, and secession, ended with the surrender of Robert E. Lee's army at Appomattox Court House. Historians have, until recently, ranked Grant as nearly the worst president; Grant's reputation was marred by his defense of corrupt appointees and by his conservative deflationary policy during the Panic of 1873. While still below average, his reputation among scholars has significantly improved in recent years because of greater appreciation for his commitment to civil rights, moral courage in his prosecution of the Ku Klux Klan, and enforcement of voting rights. James Grant Wilson (April 28, 1832 – February 1, 1914) was an American editor, author, bookseller and publisher, who founded the Chicago Record in 1857, the first literary paper in that region. During the American Civil War, he was commissioned as a major of the 15th Illinois Cavalry and became a brevet brigadier general in 1865. He settled in New York, where he edited biographies and histories, was a public speaker, and served as president of the Society of American Authors and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society.
