Ulysses S. Grant III (July 4, 1881 - August 29, 1968) was a grandson of the Federal General and U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant. He was a career soldier, serving during most of the foreign wars the United States participated in during the 20th century, including World War I and World War II.

Ulysses S. Grant III in "The Last Reunion"Edit

In 1932, Ulysses S. Grant III attended the dedication of the Richmond Battlefield Parks in Richmond, Virginia. The dedication occurred during a reunion of Civil War veterans and was on their agenda. Grant admitted he hadn't been sure of the reception he would receive, given his name, but everyone had been kind and many of the veterans crowded around him to shake his hand, including former Confederate Captain John Houston Thorpe. Thorpe felt that Grant's presence among his grandfather's former foes said much for reconciliation between North and South.[1]
