description

In this epic 1885 work, General Ulysses S. Grant, eighteenth 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 maps, illustrations, and 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.
