Ulysses S. Grant

The S doesn’t stand for anything, because “Ulysses S. Grant” isn’t this guy’s actual name. He was born Hiram Ulysses Grant and only picked up the initial when a clerk at West Point wrote down his name wrong and he thought “close enough.” He should have kept Hiram, if only for all the other Hirams out there who think there’s no way one of them could ever rise to the highest office in the land. 2.0/5
