Ulysses Grigsby was an Anglo-Atlantean landowner in French Atlantis during the Atlantean War of Independence. In spring of 1776, the second year of the war, Grigsby personally met with General Victor Radcliff, and suggested a field that would make an excellent spot for the Atlanteans to engage the British under General William Howe. While Radcliff didn't completely trust Grigsby out of expediency, he did see the value of the field Grigsby provided. When the battle did ultimately prove to be the most successful one for the Atlanteans up to that point, Grigsby, again out of caution, was out of sight and under guard for its duration. When it was over, Radcliff released Grigsby from custody, and conceded Grigsby had been right. Grigsby did extract a promise from Radcliff that Radcliff would try convince the Atlantean Assembly to reward Grisby with specie, although Radcliff privately doubted this would happen.
