I can’t confirm that Grant ran against a corpse. Is this definitely true? All I can find is that The Hartford Post once described Horatio Seymour, the person running against him, as “almost as much of a corpse” as James Buchanan, a former Democratic president who had recently died. Reference: http://tinyurl.com/horatioseymour Seymour lived for 28 years past the election that he lost to Grant.
