Historical President?

Elizabeth Sands Ulysses S. Grant was a president, but he wasn't a drunk like the book portrays him. Andrew Jackson was the Indian killer (Trail of Tears). Actually, Grant suffered from severe migraines, but the troops chalked it up to hangovers. Those closest to Grant said he was a sober man and didn't drink. Grant did try to initiate Peace Policies with tribes, and replaced cruel Indian Agents with Christian Missionaries. Not that it was a major improvement, but he wasn't quite as horrible as the book would have the reader believe.
Maurita Kling U S Grant was indeed a President!!
