The Best Cigars

Ulysses S. Grant is known as a president who had an exceptional combination of "character and policy."

General (and later president) Ulysses S. Grant fought and held command in numerous wars and battles over his career in the military. The zenith of his time in the forces was defeating the Confederate military and effectively ending the Civil war. We can only hope that after all of that, he got to enjoy one of those "best cigars" seemed to appreciate so much.

There is one good thing about being the Commanding General, beyond the pageantry, the ridiculous vanity, something few of them would ever understand. You can get the best cigars.
