The Grant family originally arrived in Boston in 1630 and each generation moved  steadily westward before ending up in Ohio. There, after Grant's grandmother died, his  grandfather was unable to provide for the eight children and had to break up the family.  Jesse had been the second child of an alleged Revolutionary War hero. Although during  Grant's life the distorted stories of the famous grandfather, Captain Noah Grant, were  retold with abandon, historians now doubt that Noah served in the war at all, much less  distinguished himself as a leader on the fields of battle. In any event, at age eleven,  Jesse found himself apprenticed out to a local politician, where the young man acquired  an interest in politics. From there, he joined his half-brother in the tanning business  before landing in Ravenna.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
