Ulysses S. Grant was a war hero and former president, yet towards the end of his life he was nearly broke as a result of unwisely investing everything he had with a ponzi schemer named Ferdinand Ward. As a way of leaving something behind for his family, Grant wrote feverishly to finish his memoirs which would be published by Mark Twain.
