Like Trump, Ulysses S. Grant Beat the 'Elites' To Win America's Favor - It Just Took a Bit Longer (85 hits)

The appraisal of Ulysses S. Grant, the nation’s 18th president, has been on the rise in recent years, no doubt helped along by new works reexamining his leadership during a pivotal time in U.S. history.

Grant has seen the largest rise of any of the presidents in C-SPAN’s ranking by noted historians from 2000 to 2017, jumping from 33rd place to 22nd. The most recent survey was completed in 2017.

Many will likely have their true introduction to the Ohio native on Memorial Day when The History Channel premiers its much-anticipated three-night mini-series “Grant,” which is executive produced by Pulitzer-prize winning biographer Ron Chernow and actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Chernow, author of “Alexander Hamilton,” the biography that inspired the wildly popular Broadway musical, has done much to raise the profile of the exploits of this 19th century hero through his 2017 biography, “Grant.”

However, Frank Scaturro — author of “President Grant Reconsidered” (1999) and head of the Grant Monument Association — was among those drawn to study this former chief executive’s time in office before it was back in vogue.
