Meet the Author

Our 18th President Ulysses S. Grant was born on April 27, 1822 and died July 23, 1885. He graduated from West Point in 1843, as a career soldier he participated in the Mexican-American War and rose in the ranks, becoming a colonel in the early months of the Civil War. In 1863, he was promoted to Lieutenant General, in charge of the entire Union Army. General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. Subsequently the 46-year old Grant was elected president and took office in 1869 and served two terms. He died of throat cancer in the summer of 1885.

    An incredible resource! You can not get a better civil war source than a first person account from General Grant himself. Highly recommended!

    formatting problems

    Unfortunately, the margins in this book are set way too wide. On the nook 1e, each line contains maybe 1-2 words with margins set very wide. On the iPod touch, each line contains a single letter. I have heard that these memoirs are excellent, but would not recommend this edition unless/until the margins are fixed. I'll write to BN customer service and if the problem is fixed, I will update my review.
