Ulysses Grant was the 18th president of America during the reconstruction period after the civil war. Grant was born on April 27, 1822. He was also famous for being the Union General that leads his Union army to victory against the Southern Confederate army. At the time, Grant was the youngest president, being sworn in at age 46. He served 2 terms and like Washington, he did not seek a 3rd term. His burial site in New York City is considered a national landmark. He is on the face of the $50 dollar. Pretty noble and a bit of an underappreciated U.S. president! Let’s draw this American general! Ulysses S. Grant!

✏️ TOOLS FOR SUCCESS

  • How-To-Draw Template – International (A4) or U.S. Size (8.5×11 in)
  • Sketching Pencil
  • Polymer Eraser
  • Outline Marker
  • Coloring Tools

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.
