Video: Ulysses S. Grant on Slavery

Ulysses S. Grant States that the Grants Consider the Institution of Slavery Unjustifiable, In a Previously Unknown and Unpublished Letter to a Young Boy – See more at:  The only known Grant letter written after 1864 containing his characterization of the institution of slavery, and with the paucity of such letters written before, quite possibly the only one in private hands.  With an emotion of regret, he writes that  while his wife owned slaves she "could not see how it was possible that any body ever justified such an institution"

Music mixed from “The Temperature of the Air on the Bow of the Kaleetan” by Chris Zabriskie.
