The 18th President of the United States and famed Civil War general Ulysses S. Grant has signed this sepia photograph. Grant was the Commanding General of the United States Army from March 9, 1864 until 1869, when the unassuming battlefield genius ascended to the highest office in the land. Grant led the Union army to several decisive victories in the Civil War, including in the Overland Campaign and the pivotal Vicksburg Campaign. As President, Grant rebuilt the United States economy after the disastrous Johnson presidency and helped reunite the United States after the schism of the Civil War. Today, Grant’s presidency is regarded by experts and pundits as one of the most successful of the 19th century. This offered photograph was taken by J.E. McClees of Philadelphia. It shows Grant’s upper body and measures approximately 2.5 x 4 inches. A slight fracture runs across the surface of this photograph. Grant has signed the photograph in black steel-tip fountain pen, inscribing “Lt. Gen USA” below his crisp “U.S. Grant” signature. Written on the backing of this photograph in gray pencil is “To C.B Barclay”. This stunning and historic photograph comes with a LOA from JSA (BB12036).
