ULYSSES S. GRANT, THE MOST ILLUSTRIOUS WARRIOR AND STATESMAN OF MODERN TIMES, THE CAPTAIN WHOSE INVINCIBLE SWORD SAVED THE REPUBLIC FROM DISMEMBERMENT, MADE LIBERTY THE LAW OF THE LAND; A MAN TOO BROAD FOR PREJUDICE, TOO HUMANE TO DESPISE THE HUMBLEST, TOO GREAT TO BE SMALL AT ANY POINT. IN HIM THE NEGRO FOUND A PROTECTOR, THE INDIAN A FRIEND, A VANQUISHED FOE A BROTHER, AN IMPERILED NATION A SAVIOR. - Frederick Douglass
