Under Grant, the Union Army was able to defend the U.S. territories north of Mason-Dixon Line from the Confederate military. As president, Grant led the Radical Republicans in their effort during the Radical Reconstruction to rebuild country's economy that devastated by the war, eliminate slavery, protect African American citizenship, and enforce the civil right laws. In foreign policy, Grant sought to increase American trade and influence, while remaining at peace with the world. Grant has been consistently ranked by scholars and the public as one of the greatest U.S. presidents.
