Overview

Ulysses S. Grant's two-volume autobiography includes detailed personal writings covering his life from his earliest days through to the end of the Civil War. The truest first-person account of the war that split the nation. Especially interesting are his insights he offers describing the officers, his men and the tactics he used during the many battles. This volume, over 600 pages, offers all of the maps and drawings Grant refers to in his writings. And while Grant does not discuss his presidency, he probably was considering a third volume, but he died five days after he penned the final words here.

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.
