US Grant: Life of the former President

 Life After the Presidency

After he retired from the Presidency, Grant became a partner in a financial firm, which went bankrupt. About that time, he learned he had throat cancer. He began writing his memoirs to pay off his debts and to provide for his family. As he raced against death, he produced an outstanding book that earned nearly $450,000. Soon after he completed the last page, he died on July 23, 1885, at Mount MacGregor, New York. The "American Hero" was 63.
