July 23rd 1885: Ulysses S. Grant dies

On this day in 1885, former Civil War general and 18th President of the United States Ulysses S. Grant died. He became a national icon after he led the Union to victory over Robert E. Lee’s Confederate forces in the Civil War and secured Lee’s surrender at Appomattox in 1865. He became President in 1869, and enforced Reconstruction and civil rights laws. However, his presidency was marred by stories of his alcoholism and corruption in his administration. He left the office in 1877, and launched an unsuccessful bid for a third term in 1880. In 1885 he died of throat cancer at the age of 63 and his body lay in state.

"I hope that nobody will be distressed on my account."
- Grant’s last words


Ragged Beard

Either this picture is extra low quality or John William Pearson shaved his beard with that saber of his. Or both.

“Deep down, you think it’s best for them/ And you hate the thought of them being by themselves/ But you know that it’s not over/ You know that it’s not through/ Let it burn/ Let it burn/ Gotta let it burn” General William Tecumseh Sherman during his infamous “March to the Sea” 

CaldWELL

Henry Clay Cald-WELL DONE, GOOD SIR. Seriously, Judge Henry Caldwell, I judge your beard to be one of the finest I’ve seen.
