Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-North Carolina) and 13 other members of the Republican party will soon introduce a bill to replace the face of Ulysses S. Grant with that of Ronald Reagan on the $50 dollar bill.
McHenry points out that scholars have consistently ranked Reagan as a better president than Grant. In a Wall Street Journal survey from 2005, Reagan was ranked No. 6 while Grant was No. 29.
Grant was the legendary Union general from Ohio who led the North to victory, became our 18th president and was a champion of African American rights. Unfortunately, his administration was plagued by scandal which often overshadowed his accomplishments.
