  • Napoleon Bonaparte vs. Ulysses S. Grant ***Final Round!***

    Here are some facts for each player to help you in your voting (From Wikipedia):


    Napoleon, Napoleon I (born Napoleone di Buonaparte, later Napoléon Bonaparte) [1] (15 August 1769–5 May 1821) was a French military and political leader who had significant impact on modern European history. He was a general during the French Revolution, the ruler of France as Premier Consul of the French Republic, Empereur des Français, King of Italy, Mediator of the Swiss Confederation and Protector of the Confederation of the Rhine.

    Ulysses S. Grant, born Hiram Ulysses Grant (April 27, 1822 – July 23, 1885), was an American general and the eighteenth President of the United States (1869–1877). He achieved international fame as the leading Union general in the American Civil War. Grant first reached national prominence by taking Forts Henry and Donelson in 1862 in the first Union victories of the war. The following year, his brilliant campaign ending in the surrender of Vicksburg secured Union control of the Mississippi and—with the simultaneous Union victory at Gettysburg—turned the tide of the war in the North's favor. Named commanding general of the Federal armies in 1864, he implemented a coordinated strategy of simultaneous attacks aimed at destroying the South's ability to carry on the war. In 1865, after conducting a costly war of attrition in the East, he accepted the surrender of his Confederate opponent Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Court House. Grant has been described by J.F.C. Fuller as "the greatest general of his age and one of the greatest strategists of any age." His Vicksburg Campaign in particular has been scrutinized by military specialists around the world.

          ah, you know how we Americans are, money, money, money. Grants on the $50 bill haven't seen Nappy on a French Franc. Many of Napoleons accomplishments were not long lasting. Flailing around Europe and getting sent into exile not once but twice...........getting chased out of Russia and loosing at Waterloo...............a lot of historical PR but was he really that great?

          US Grant for me, rock the boat.fa

                          I bow to those who have defeated my leader for i think Fredrick and Genghis were better that I shall vote for the one who beat Genghis which is Grant.
