The Closing Rounds of the Civil War
Generally regarded as the greatest military memoirs ever written, the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant offer invaluable insights into the political and battlefield conduct of the Civil War.
Grant rose from modest circumstances and a failed business career to become Lincoln's indispensable general. On behalf of the Union he prosecuted the war tenaciously and often with audacity; but he had a respect for his opponents, as Americans, that he showed in the large-heartedness of his actions in the war's final days, as chronicled in this excerpt from his Memoirs.
