Lincoln (2012) Poster


Jared Harris: Ulysses S. Grant



  • Ulysses S. Grant : [to Lincoln]  By outward appearance, you're 10 years older than you were a year ago.

  • Ulysses S. Grant : If you want to discuss peace with President Lincoln, consider revisions.

    Alexander Stephens : If we're not to discuss a truce between warring nations, what in heaven's name can we discuss?

    Ulysses S. Grant : Terms of surrender.

  • Ulysses S. Grant : [Grant hands the Confederate peace commissioner's proposal back to them, covered in scribbled notes]  Gentlemen, I suggest you work some changes into your proposal before you give it to the President.

    [Turns and walks away. Stephens follows] 

    Senator R.M.T. Hunter : We're eager to be on our way to Washington.

    Alexander Stephens : Mr Lincoln tell you to tell us this?

    Ulysses S. Grant : [Grant takes a cup of coffee from a steward]  It says 'securing peace for our two countries' and it goes on like that.

    Alexander Stephens : I don't know what you...

    Ulysses S. Grant : There's just one country. You and I, we're citizens of that country. I'm fighting to protect it from armed rebels.

    [Pats Stephen's shoulder and goes to sit down] 

    Ulysses S. Grant : From you.
