The true measure of Grant's courage came later, when he fought off cancer long enough to finish his memoirs and leave his family provided for.
A few years ago I visited Grant's Tomb (on Riverside Drive in New York City) and asked the ranger there what the official answer was to the question, "Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?"
He replied, "No one is buried in Grant's Tomb. The General and Mrs. Grant are entombed there."
