Grant as a president and the general, whose fortunes fluctuates with excessive speed and frequency.

Grant went on to realize his immense potential, going through the ranks of the Union army.
Later on. S. Grant ingratiated himself to then President Lincoln and became one of his most trusted generals and also a tactical genius of the entire war effort.
