About the Author

Born in Ohio in 1822, Ulysses S. Grant graduated from West Point and fought in the U.S.-Mexican War before marrying Julia Dent in 1848. During the Civil War Grant proved himself to be the conflict's greatest general and became a hero to millions. His two terms as president, 1869-77, were marked by conflict and controversy, but he won renewed admiration for writing his brilliant Personal Memoirs while suffering from throat cancer, completing them days before his death in 1885.

Ron Chernow is the prizewinning author of seven books--including, most recently, the national best seller Grant--and the recipient of the 2015 National Humanities Medal. His first book, The House of Morgan, won the National Book Award, Washington: A Life won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography, and Alexander Hamilton--the inspiration for the Broadway musical--won the American History Book Prize. He resides in Brooklyn, New York.
