32 years old, drunk, and kicked out of the army, Ulysses S. Grant didn’t have great prospects. And that was just the beginning. For the next seven years, he faced such financial hardship that he began selling firewood on street corners and named his family’s cabin Hardscrabble. Things got so bad he had to rent Hardscrabble out.
He obviously turned things around at some point… At 42 years old, Grant was Commander of the Union Army. At 46, he was president.
This 1922 gold commemorative, minted less than 40 years after Grant died, shows Grant on one side and the log cabin he was born in on the other.
