Peace Policy of Ulysses S. Grant



A delegation of Native Americans arrive in Washington, D.C. to meet with the commissioner of Indian Affairs and are greeted by members of the Grant administration. Grant's Peace Policy was acclaimed for its defense of Native Americans and its opposition to corruption in the Bureau of Indian Affairs, but it was also designed to isolate Native Americans on reservations, where federal agents and missionaries could work to "civilize" them.
