Publisher's Summary

What do you know about Ulysses S. Grant?

Ulysses S. Grant is perhaps one of the most unsung heroes of American history. He was one of the crucial leaders of the American Civil War. After all, it was due to Grant’s actions that the Battles of Shiloh and Vicksburg were won. And it was through Grant that the final terms of the Confederacy’s surrender were signed.

That is pretty good for a military man who actually dropped out of the military! Yes, prior to the war, Grant quit the life of a military man in favor of living on a farm with his young family.

Yet, even though he tried to take a detour in life, he could not escape his fate. And he found himself back in the army just in time to lead the nation through the worst and most divisive war it had ever seen. After the war, he once again rose to prominence to become the eighteenth president of the United States. From his perch in DC, he oversaw the reconstruction of the South and championed the Civil Rights Act of 1875.

However, for all the good that he did, some of his less noble associates managed to get him embroiled in controversy with their corrupt dealings. After two terms as president, Grant was ready to leave the drama of DC behind. He traveled the world and met with all of the leading lights of his day before settling into his final years with nothing left to do but write his memoirs and reflect on his great life.
