Abstract:

This feature documentary showcases Grant—the man, rather than the legend. Within ten years, Grant’s life takes a stunning turn from a father struggling to make a living to the general who won the Civil War. Grant would later become the 18th president of the United States. It was his early years that defined Grant. He was a man with no money and no prospects. In 1859, at age 37, Grant made a choice to free his only slave rather than sell him for profit. Before anyone had heard of U.S. Grant, the man who would become a great general was already a man of courage and principle. While other Union generals refused African-American soldiers, General Grant valued their contributions and accepted all he could. When many in both North and South turned away from African-American equality after the Civil War, President Grant kept on fighting—as he did throughout the war. Grant lobbied Congress to pass the 15th Amendment, forever giving African-Americans the right to vote.
