It is difficult to judge whether each of these men made "the better choice" for themselves. They each gained and lost: King lost Viole; Grant lost some more years of servitude. They each found a peaceful place for themselves where they could prosper in their own ways: Grant had a free family and King received an education. It seems that each man died with some of his dreams and hopes realized. Certainly, each died as a free man, no longer a slave.
