    Ulysses Grant rose from obscurity to discover he had a genius for battle, and he propelled the Union to victory in the Civil War. After Abraham Lincoln's assassination and the disastrous brief presidency of Andrew Johnson, America turned to Grant again to unite the country, this time as president. In Brands' sweeping, majestic full biography, Grant emerges as a heroic figure who was fearlessly on the side of right.

    Tad Davis says: "Underrated hero"
    "OUTSTANDING HISTORICAL STORY"

    Would you listen to The Man Who Saved the Union again? Why?

    NO.
    TOO MANY AUDIBLE BOOKS YET TO HEAR.


    What other book might you compare The Man Who Saved the Union to and why?

    ALL OF H. W. BRANDS WORKS; HE LIVES AND TEACHES HERE IN AUSTIN.


    What does Stephen Hoye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    MAKES IT MORE INTERESTING.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    NO.
    I DO A LOT OF WORK ON MY LAWNS AND GARDENS; WHILE I WORK, I LISTEN.


    Any additional comments?

    WAITING FOR THE NOVEMBER CROP OF NEW MYSTERY THRILLERS.
