"I felt sad and depressed," Grant recalled, "at the downfall of a foe who had fought so long and valiantly, and had suffered so much for a cause, though that cause was, I believe, one of the worst for which a people ever fought and for which there was the least excuse."

The "fake" Longstreet's dubious post:

"If I thought this war was about slavery, I'd resign and offer my sword to the other side."--U.S. Grant

The two quotes don't exactly jive, do they?
Not to mention the fact that as President, Grant did many things for the freedmen and for the cause of civil rights for blacks.
