Jimmy Stewart on Ulysses S. Grant in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

As Jimmy Stewart said in 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington' after viewing the Grant memorial in front of the Capital Building: "I see a small Ohio farm boy becoming a great soldier. I see thousands of marching men. I see General Lee with a broken heart, surrendering, and I can see the beginning of a new nation, like Abraham Lincoln said. And I can see that Ohio boy being inaugurated president. Things like that can only happen in a country like America."
