Civilization V Customisation Wiki

America led by Ulysses Grant is a custom civilization mod by DuskJockey, with contributions from RawSasquatch, grant, and Zharques.

This mod requires Brave New World.



The United States of America is a world "super-power" (which more or less means that it possesses weapons capable of destroying everything on the planet). A relatively young civilization, the United States formed in the 18th century, nearly self-destructed in the 19th century, and became the most powerful and dominant military, technological, cultural and economical civilization in the 20th. One can hardly guess what will happen to it in the 21st.

Ulysses Grant[]

Ulysses Grant commanded the victorious Union army during the American Civil War and served as the 18th U.S. president from 1869 to 1877. An Ohio native, Grant graduated from West Point and fought in the Mexican-American War. During the Civil War, Grant, an aggressive and determined leader, was given command of all the U.S. armies. After the war he became a national hero, and the Republicans nominated him for president in 1868.A primary focus of Grant's administration was Reconstruction, and he worked to reconcile the North and South while also attempting to protect the civil rights of newly freed black slaves. While Grant was personally honest, some of his associates were corrupt and his administration was tarnished by various scandals. After retiring, Grant invested in a brokerage firm that went bankrupt, costing him his life savings. He spent his final days penning his memoirs, which were published the year he died and proved a critical and financial success.

Dawn of Man[]

"The time of bloodshed is over, and now the task of reconstruction falls on your shoulders, Ulysses S. Grant, 18th President of the United States, and General of the Army. After defeating the traitorous Confederacy on the field of battle in the Civil War, you remained in your army post, touring the South until you were called upon by the Republican party to be their presidential nominee. By your humble, quiet nature, you became the youngest man to assume the dignity of that office, and by your true concern for the plight of African and Native Americans, you became the champion of the Reconstruction era. You would instate a Justice Department to prosecute supremacist movements, and you would also attempt to implement a policy of harmonious coexistence with the natives. However, economic panic and general corruption would undermine your policies, resulting in a presidency of mixed results.

Brave President Grant, America lies in ruins, and once more requires your services to steer her into recovery. Your people are once again divided and need a hero to cast their united gazes upon. Can you call for a time of peace and a time for mending the wounds of war? Can you reconstruct the United States into a more fair and more just society? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "I am Ulysses S. Grant, President of America. On behalf of the nation, I greet you."

Defeat: "I had hoped that America would never see this side of war. But alas."
