Ulysses S. Grant Inaugural - Need to Pray to Almighty God

[Andrew Johnson was our 17th President. He was sworn in by Supreme Court Chief Justice Salmon Chase after President Lincoln died. He served only one term and never gave an Inaugural Address.]

Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th President of the United States. In his first Inaugural Address (1869) he said:

"In conclusion I ask patient forbearance one toward another throughout the land, and a determined effort on the part of every citizen to do his share toward cementing a happy union; and I ask the prayers of the nation to Almighty God in behalf of this consummation."
