Civil War Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant by Ulysses S Grant

Book Description

From the Western frontier to the battlefields of Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Franklin, Petersburg, and Richmond, Grant saw the war from the front lines and made the decisions that affected lives on a day-to-day basis. His writings provide a revealing look into the life of the commander in chief of the Union army as well as the seminal eyewitness account of the War between the States. The Civil War Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant is a popular abridgment of his two-volume Personal Memoirs, which he arranged to have published to provide for his family after his death. (It was a huge bestseller and broke all records in American publishing at the time.) He died less than one week after completing its writing. This abridgment covers Grant's experiences in the Civil War, from the first shot at Sumter to Appomattox, giving the reader a front-line seat next to the greatest Union general of the war. Highlights Include: - General William Tecumseh Sherman on his infamous march through Georgia- General George B. McClellan on the battle of Antietam and the legendary lost order that should have tipped him off to Lee's plans- General George Armstrong Custer's experience of going straight from studying at West Point to the battlefield- General (CSA) James Longstreet on serving under Robert E. Lee- General (CSA) G. Moxley Sorrel on serving under James Longstreet- Major (CSA) J.S.Mosby on the South's Guerilla campaign- General (CSA) Jubal Earley's memoir of the last year of the war.
