You know you’ve condemned your child to a lifetime of endless badassery, when you name him Ulysses.
Some quick facts about Ulysses S. Grant:
- He was born in Point Pleasant, Ohio.
- He is widely regarded as a military genius.
- He basically won the American Civil War as a General and helped stabilize the country afterwards in his two terms as president.
- He won passage of and helped enforce the 15th amendment.
- He effectively destroyed the Ku Klux Klan (Yes, it came back, but not until decades later).
- His face is on the $50.
- He had a proper presidential beard.
I wonder what he’s doing now…
