Ulysses S. Grant, The Seven of Clubs
18th President of the United States, 1869—1877

Grant was a mild mannered man who was repulsed by hunting, rare steaks, off—color language, and the thought of being seen naked. Lincoln put him in charge of all union armies during the Civil War. Almost any time during the day you could find him smoking – up to 20 cigars a day. He eventually developed mouth cancer. Grant ended his life a poor man in constant pain. To spare his wife a life of poverty he spent his last years writing his memoirs for her to sell. He died only 3 days after completing them.
