After Lincoln’s assassination, Grant became increasingly disillusioned by President Andrew Johnson’s approach to Reconstruction, and drifted toward the “Radical” Republicans. Elected president in 1868, the youngest man in the office to that date, Grant stabilized the post-war national economy, created the Department of Justice, used the military to enforce laws in the former Confederacy and prosecuted the Ku Klux Klan. Grant strengthened the Republican Party in the South and signed three civil rights acts into law. He appointed African-Americansand Jewish-Americans to prominent federal offices. In 1871 he created the first Civil Service Commission. The Democrats and Liberal Republicans united behind Grant’s opponent in the presidential election of 1872, but Grant was re-elected by a large margin. Mixed in with his accomplishents, the Grant administration was mired in corruption. Grant’s Peace Policy with Native Americans was a bold departure for its time. In foreign policy, Grant sought to increase trade and influence while remaining at peace with the world. With Secretary of State Hamilton Fish, he successfully resolved the Alabamaclaims with Great Britain. Grant and Fish negotiated a peaceful resolution with Spain over the VirginiusAffair. Congress rejected Grant’s initiative to annex the Dominican Republic, creating a rift among Republicans. In national affairs, Grant’s administration implemented a gold standard and sought to strengthen the dollar. Grant’s immediate response to the Panic of 1873 failed to halt a severe industrial depression that produced high unemployment, deflation, and bankruptcies.
