Publisher's Summary

Lt. General Ulysses S. Grant (born Hiram Ulysses Grant), 1822 - 1885, was a military commander during the American Civil War and post-war Reconstruction period, and later, President of the United States (1869 - 1877). Under Grant's command, the Union Army defeated the Confederate forces and ended the American Civil War.

These are personal reminiscences of Grant which allow us to peer back in time to see him through the eyes of those who knew him. Some of the anecdotes describe brief encounters with Grant, while others are from historically prominent men who knew Grant well. What they have in common are the intimate details that reveal the personality and character of General Grant.

Includes accounts from:

  • Adam Badeau
  • William T. Sherman
  • Horace Porter
  • James Harrison Wilson
  • Frederick Dent Grant
  • Alexander H. Stephens
  • Ely S. Parker
