Publisher's Summary

Lt. General Ulysses S. Grant (born Hiram Ulysses Grant), 1822 - 1885, was a military commander during the American Civil War and post-war Reconstruction period, and later, President of the United States (1869 - 1877). Under Grant's command, the Union Army defeated the Confederate forces and ended the American Civil War.

These are personal reminiscences of Grant which allow us to peer back in time to see him through the eyes of those who knew him. Some of the anecdotes describe brief encounters with Grant, while others are from historically prominent men who knew Grant well. What they have in common are the intimate details that reveal the personality and character of General Grant.

Includes accounts from:

  • Adam Badeau
  • William T. Sherman
  • Horace Porter
  • James Harrison Wilson
  • Frederick Dent Grant
  • Alexander H. Stephens
  • Ely S. Parker

Disappointing

The beginning of the book almost became its end for me. The first couple chapters are less personal reminiscences than mini biographies. If I wasn't familiar with President Grant I would not have been interested in the book. I don't need nor do I want a brief recapitulation of the standard bio. Towards the middle and end the book greatly improved and started to deliver on its promise. Sometimes it was interesting to note how much was revealed of those remembering instead of Pres. Grant. If only the first half could have been true to the promise.

If you love Grant you will love this book

It seems that Grant’s reputation was formed by his enemies after the war.
This book is told by his devoted admirers and shows what a good and brilliant man he was.
My hope is more people will read the positive things about Grant’s character and his life and spread the word.

I loved this book

I loved this book

From Grant’s closest friends, to enemies (Confederates), to politicians and news reporters, there were many stories told.

Courage under fire, wit and wisdom, apparently always calm and patient, all of those interviewed had something fascinating to say about Grant.

I may have to go back and listen again, it was definitely interesting and educational.
