Louis and after resurrecting his marriage, Grant tried his hand at farming and built his family a massive house on his father-in-law 's farm. However, even with his in-laws ' help and loans of money and slaves, Grant could not make the farm work, and was reduced to selling firewood on the street corner in St. Louis.
