Overview

In 1863 -- the middle of the Civil War -- General Ulysses S. Grant traveled through the mud and muck right along with his Union troops. When the war was over, Grant looked forward to spending time with his family and had no thoughts about entering politics. But as a Civil War hero, he was the obvious choice to run for president. Under the campaign slogan of "Let Us Have Peace," Grant was elected to the presidency in 1868, and again in 1872. Hounded by scandal and corruption throughout both his presidencies, Grant bravely signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1875. In Ulysses S. Grant, author Michael A. Schuman examines Grant's involvement in the Mexican War and Civil War, his family life, and his political life. In spite of the corruption surrounding him during his two terms as president, Grant's memorable legacy and status as a national hero will long be remembered.

Examines the life and times of the eighteenth president of the United States, discussing his personal life as well as his military and political careers.
