When the South seceded to form the Confederate States of America, few people knew the name Ulysses S. Grant. But by the end of the Civil War, the Union general had become a national hero. He possessed all of the qualities that President Abraham Lincoln wanted for the commander of the Union army. He was decisive, daring, and stubborn. Some Northerners proudly called him Unconditional Surrender Grant, because he would accept nothing less from a defeated enemy.
