Publisher's Summary

In this epic 1885 work, General Ulysses S. Grant, 18th president of the United States and staunch supporter of the Union cause, set the record straight on his storied life and career. At its heart is Grant, victor and eyewitness to the defining moments of the Civil War, including the Battles of Shiloh, Chattanooga, and the Wilderness; the Siege of Vicksburg; and the Appomattox campaign, which concluded with the surrender of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. 

Featuring personal correspondence, Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant reveals the candid, often witty, and pragmatic military genius as one of the most vital observers of war and peace in the history of American letters.

Revised edition: Previously published as Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, this edition of Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Detailed thoughtful work

This book shared very detailed thinking and actions by Ulysses S Grant. It also reflected on the quality of the men who he fought
alongside and his lack of patience with people lacking courage. Frankly, it was a little too detailed at times and was a bit boring but overall a great way to understand the tax for thinking of an amazing general.

An outstanding memoir of an outstanding individual

The memoir is a direct peak inside the thoughts and actions of one of America's greatest Generals during the most critical time in American history that would define what we would become. He suffers no fools and his conduct of the Civil War from Colonel to Commander of all the National Forces shows the unequalled determination and vision that his peers could not match. The narration was perfect and helped you not only hear Grant's recollections but feel them.

US Grant

A wonderful look into the mind of a military genius. with all of the negative things that are said about Ulysses s Grant, it is refreshing to see his service to our country through his eyes.
