Which U.S. President Re-Proved the Pythagorean Theorem?

Asked by Autumn Lambert, student, Warner Robins High on March 12, 1997:
Which President designed a proof for the pythagorean theorem?
I believe that the U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant came up with a new proof of the Pythagorean Theorem. (I will attempt to verify that information to make sure).
