Overview

Ulysses S. Grant (born Hiram Ulysses Grant; April 27, 1822 to July 23, 1885) was the 18th President of the United States (1869 to 1877) as well as military commander during the Civil War and post-war Reconstruction periods. Under Grant's command, the Union Army defeated the Confederate military and ended the Confederate States of America.

His personal memoirs include all the events of his life including the scandals during his presidency that somewhat tarnished him image as a war hero.

This is the second of the two volumes of Grant's personal memoirs, along with numerous actual photos of Grant and many of his personal notes.

These memoirs give us a direct glimpse into that time in our history that preceded, endured and followed the American Civil War.

    Thought Provoking & Insightful

    President Grant has shown us what an excellent memory for fact and detail he maintained even until his last days! Being a dedicated reader of American History I found this piece of work to be both though provoking and insightful in the way it vividly brought to life one of the truly most terrible times in our nations history! I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about the Civil War, and the lasting effects it had on our nation!

    Helpful information

    Any admirer of Grant will appreciate this on eBook. However, you should know two things before you download it (which you should probably still do): 1) post-period spaces default to a character looking like <Ý>, and 2) this is only Volume I, NOT the complete work. I haven't seen an electronic version of Volume II anywhere.
