Is Ulysses S Grant a good general in Evony?

One of the best Siege Generals in the game, Ulysses S Grant has a huge Siege Machine attack once all specialties have been maxed out. Additionally, for low spenders, he makes a better option than Napoleon as he relies less on specialty buffs. He is also now available in the Tavern.

His attack buff is active when attacking and defending, so can make a great Siege Defense General too.
