Grant (book)
Grant is a 2017 biography of Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th President of the United States, written by American historian and biographer Ron Chernow. Grant, a Union general during the Civil War, served two terms as president, from 1869 to 1877. Chernow asserts that Grant's presidency has been seen in an undeservedly negative light.Contents1 Background 2 Critical response 3 See also 4 ReferencesBackground[edit] Chernow had previously written about two Founding Fathers, in a biography of Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton
(2004) and Washington: A Life (2010). "I had always had a fantasy about doing a big, sweeping saga about the Civil War and Reconstruction," Chernow said. "It fascinates me that there are so many Americans who know about the Civil War battles in intimate detail, but they know nothing about Reconstruction."[1]The caricature of his presidency was that it was, you know, stained by corruption, and nepotism and cronyism

Grant (law)
A grant, in law, is a transfer of property,[1] generally from a person or other entity giving the property (the grantor) to a person or entity receiving the property (the grantee).[2] Historically, a grant was a transfer by deed of that which could not be passed by livery,[3] an act evidenced by letters patent under the Great Seal, granting something from the king to a subject,[4] and a technical term made use of in deeds of conveyance of lands to import a transfer.[5] Though the word "grant" was originally made use of, in treating of conveyances of interests in lands, to denote a transfer by deed of that which could not be passed by livery, and was applied only to incorporeal hereditaments, it became a generic term, applicable to the transfer of all classes of real property.[6] As distinguished from a mere license, a grant passes some estate or interest, corporeal or incorporeal, in the lands which it embraces; can only he made by an instrument in writing, under seal; and is irrevocab

Grant (money)
Grants are non-repayable funds or products disbursed or given by one party (grant makers), often a government department, corporation, foundation or trust, to a recipient, often (but not always) a nonprofit entity, educational institution, business or an individual. In order to receive a grant, some form of "Grant Writing" often referred to as either a proposal or an application is required. Most grants are made to fund a specific project and require some level of compliance and reporting. The grant writing process involves an applicant submitting a proposal (or submission) to a potential funder, either on the applicant's own initiative or in response to a Request for Proposal from the funder. Other grants can be given to individuals, such as victims of natural disasters or individuals who seek to open a small business
