Ameliorate Ulysses S. Grant

Directions: Students should correct the sentence in red.  There are three commas missing and many capitalization errors.

VIDEO opportunities:
.... a serious and sober look at Grant: short video about Ulysses S. Grant  (length 3:41)
... a fact-filled but not-so-serious musical video about Grant ...the word cacophony comes to mind...but it is worth watching:   VIDEO  (length 3:56)

Suggested answer:
In March 1864, President Lincoln appointed Ulysses S. Grant, the hero of the battle at Vicksburg, commander of all Union armies.
