Under Grant, the Union Army defeated the Confederate military. Having effectively ended the war and secession. With the surrender of Robert E. Lee's army at Appomattox.As president he led the Radical Republicans in their effort to eliminate all vestiges of Confederate nationalism and slavery. Upset over uncontrolled violence in the South, President Grant effectively destroyed the Ku Klux Klan in 1871. President Grant believed in the protection of African American voting and civil rights. In terms of foreign policy, Grant revealed an "unexpected capacity for deliberation and consultation" that promoted the national interest.
His reputation was marred by his repeated defense of corrupt appointees, and by the deep economic depression (called the "Panic of 1873") that dominated his second term. Although his Republican Party split in 1872 with reformers denouncing him, Grant was easily reelected.
By 1875 the conservative white Southern opposition regained control of every state in the South and as he left the White House in March 1877 his policies were being undone. Reconstruction ended on a note of failure as the civil rights of blacks did not remain secure.
President Grant, however, after the controversial Presidential election of 1876, through a series of military deployments, secured the South from succession.
