My Uncle The Dead President

Being the nerd that I am, I was watching C-SPAN2's BookTV (as I do every weekend) this Sunday. During an interview with a Twain expert, Ulysses S. Grant came up (Twain was Grant's publisher). They flashed a picture of Grant and it suddenly occured to me, "Hey, my Uncle Bill looks just like Grant!" I mentioned it to my mother and she kinda looked at me weird, so maybe I'm just crazy ("just"?), but I really do think they look alike.

Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of my uncle to post so I can elicit the collective wisdom of the blogosphere on this important matter, but here's one of Grant.
