Nutcracker description by Mr. Steinbach:
Old General Grant was a tough blade of a veteran warrior. His father owned a tannery and leather business, and young Grant only reluctantly entered the military. His father sent him to the Military Academy at West Point after young Grant had earlier distinguished himself in numerous battles in the wars against Mexico from 1846 to 1848. He climbed the military career ladder soon thereafter and became Regiment Commander. President Lincoln made him Brigadier General of the volunteer Army, which was a new and special honor, especially with regard to the coming Civil War.
Grant achieved great victories but also suffered severe losses. He always demanded unconditional surrenders, which would give the impression that he wasn't an especially brilliant diplomat. Even from today's perspective, it is quite evident that he paid dearly for his victories with incredible losses, but President Abraham Lincoln thanked him personally and promoted him to the rank of Major General of the regular armed forces. After Grant continued to achieve further military victories, Lincoln was so thrilled that he promoted him to Lieutenant General, a rank which didn't even exist up to that point in time, and Congress awarded him a Congressional Medal of Honor. In 1866, he was promoted to the rank of General, which had also never officially been conferred on anyone in America up to that point in time.
In 1868, General Grant was elected Republican President of the United States with a 73% majority. He was a good old military man, but not a schooled politician. And he was certainly not a businessman. During his presidency, the attempt was made to replace the "Green Back", the printed dollar, with gold. But in spite of the economic misery, Americans elected Grant president again in 1872, this time with an 84% majority.
When Grant went into retirement, he left behind a devastated economic landscape and high unemployment.
