Overview

Excerpt from Civilization in the United States, First and Last Impressions of America

I have heard it said, I know not with what degree of truth, that while the sale in America of General Grant's Personal Memoirs has produced three hundred thousand dollars for the benefit of his widow and family, there have not in England been sold of the book three hundred copies. Certainly the book has had no wide circulation here, it has not been much read or much discussed. There are obvious reasons for this. The book relates in great detail the military history of the American Civil War, so far as Grant bore part in it; such a history cannot possibly have for other nations the interest which it has for the United States themselves.
