I have a hard time wrapping my head
around the fact
that my grandfather

was born during

This is US Grant.  Not my grandfather. . . .

the first Grant administration. . . . .

Coincidentally, Katie-Bar-The-Door just finished reading Grant's memoirs -- which she thought brilliant -- and then read Bruce Catton's Grant Moves South and Grant Takes Command, just to get a different perspective. She's now a big fan of Grant the general. And Bruce Catton, for that matter.
