Friday 15 Feb 2008: Ulysses S. Grant
The middle initial S. of the U.S. General and 18th President Ulysses S. Grant doesn't stand for anything. A congressman erroneously nominated Grant by this name for the West Point Military Academy, possibly mistaking his mother's maiden name Simpson for a middle name. Grant could not change the name when he enrolled and kept on using it.
