Grant has been widely recognised as a superior military tactician for leading the Union Army to victory over the Confederacy during the Civil War under the supervision of President Abraham Lincoln, winning key battles at Shiloh and Vicksburg.
He won two terms as President as a successor to Andrew Johnson and stabilised the economy along with attempting to remove the last vestiges of slavery, which included working to crush the Ku Klux Klan. David James Kelly is adapting the biography.
He directed DiCaprio in 2002's "Catch Me if You Can."
DiCaprio's next project is Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", set against the backdrop of the 1969 Manson Family murders.
