With racial rioting common under Andrew Johnson, Grant's views on former slaves evolved; all freedoms should be extended to African Americans, he said. Elected president in 1868, Grant faced issues of Reconstruction, industrial revolution, and the need for a workable Indian policy. His blind trust of advisors brought him scandal and failure. Financially ruined after office, Grant spent his final days writing his best-selling memoirs.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
