Ulysses S. Grant (1822)
Though he served with bravery in the Mexican-American War, Grant resigned his post several years later, possibly due to his heavy drinking.

Lee surrendered to him, ending the war, Grant was elected president. Still, he spent his final years in poverty after being swindled by a friend. Days before his death, he did what to secure his family's finances? Discuss

Ferdinand Victor Eugène Delacroix (1798)
Considered the foremost painter of the Romantic movement in France, Delacroix is known for his dramatic interpretations of scenes from mythology, literature, and political, religious, and literary history and for his sensuous use of color. His most influential work is 1830's revolution-themed Liberty Leading the People, which likely inspired the design of the Statue of Liberty.

Karel Appel (1921)
Appel was a Dutch painter and sculptor and co-founder of the abstract expressionist group COBRA, whose members hailed from Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam.

Later in life, he turned to creating figurative sculptures in wood and metal. What was done to censor Appel's controversial fresco in Amsterdam City Hall?
