The Whiskey Ring
Moving on with our scandal series…
Ulysses S. Grant’s presidency is often considered to be one of the most corrupt in history, and with good reason, as two major scandals took place during his presidency.
The Whiskey Ring scandal, involved a bribery and tax evasion scandal among many high ranking members of his cabinet and whiskey distillers. It resulted in the impeachment of his secretary of war, William Belknap, who resigned before he could be convicted.
Here is our other article on the other major scandal under President Grant, the credit mobilier scandal.
