Many farmers and working men in the South were anticipating Grant to sign the bill in order to promote growing business needs. On April 22, 1874, Grant unexpectedly vetoed the bill, going against the popular demands of Republican Party, on the thought that it would destroy the nation’s credibility. Grant generally favored the bill, but cited his reasons of change as personal.
