3. Ulysses S. Grant
This 1869 portrait of Ulysses S. Grant by Samuel B. Waugh hangs in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. It was given to the Smithsonian by IBM Corporation in 1962 and transferred to the Portrait Gallery in 1965.

“Artist Samuel Bell Waugh painted this portrait of Ulysses S. Grant just days after he became the nation's eighteenth president. Waugh's depiction of Grant in uniform, instead of civilian clothes, was indicative of how most Americans thought of their new president. Whereas Northerners hailed him as a victor and hero, Southerners saw Grant as the Yankee soldier who was most responsible for the Confederate defeat.” – NPG
