Editorial Reviews

Review

"This superb book disproves the notion that there’s nothing new to learn about the Civil War. Frank Varney builds a convincing case that William Rosecrans has been treated unfairly by historians and, perhaps more significantly, that Ulysses S. Grant deliberately destroyed his reputation and the reputations of other Civil War generals."
Civil War News

"An invaluable addition to Civil War Studies and reference shelves . . . and a sharp caution against putting too much blind faith in any one person's testimony, memoir, or historical accounting. Highly Recommended."
Midwest Book Review

“I dropped everything and plunged into this book. Every page I read presented challenges to accepted views, including my own. General Grant and the Rewriting of History represents considerable ingenuity and independence of thought.”
John Y. Simon, editor of the Grant Papers --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Frank Varney earned his Ph.D. at Cornell University. He regularly leads student groups to Civil War battlefields and makes frequent speaking appearances before Civil War Roundtables and historical societies. Professor Varney is currently developing a course to be taught on-site at Gettysburg, and will do the same for a course on Chickamauga. He teaches U.S. and classical history at Dickinson State University of North Dakota, where he is also the director of the Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program. This is his first book. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
