"There is much information available about Grant (1822-85) during the Civil War, in which he was a heroic general for the US, says Kelsey, but very little scholarly work on his presidency in 1869-77, and most of that soundly negative without much factual background. She cites, and in most cases briefly describes and assesses, sources within such sections as manuscript and archival sources, his published writings and speeches, his military career in the Mexican War and the Civil War, the elections and his two presidential terms, family and personal life, post-presidental years, iconography and dramatic media, and historical sites and organizations."
