Ulysses S. Grant benefited from votes among the newly enfranchised freedmen in the South, while the temporary political disenfranchisement of many Southern whites also helped Republican margins there. It was also the first election in which African Americans could vote in every (Northern or Reconstructed) state; Grant won office thanks to the black vote, which numbered above 700,000. This would make Grant the first President to be elected with a minority of the white vote.

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'
