Did You Know?
Ulysses S. Grant acquired the only slave he is known to have owned from his father-in-law, Frederick Dent. In the late 1850s, Grant was unsuccessfully trying to earn his fortune as a farmer. Rather than sell him for much-needed cash, Grant chose to give William Jones his freedom in March of 1859.
