Authentic war Hero, from a drunken failure.
on March 8, 2009
The civil war memoirs of Ulysses Hiram Grant (U.S.. Grant) is very instructive. Somewhat drawn out and lacks much personality. However, I can imagine this book reflects Grants drab emotions but intense life.
Knowing that life didn't treat him well outside of the Military gives us hope that perhaps we also will find our own personal niche in this ole life. From Civil War "buffs" it is a great reference book and one to support the evidence that Grant was, indeed a deserving historical figure.
This book is very instructive.
