Publisher Description

The list of American war heroes who went on to become presidents includes men as little remembered as Zachary Taylor and as famous as Dwight D. Eisenhower. While these men are venerable with a significant their place in American history, they cannot equal the status of Ulysses S. Grant, the Civil War general who rose through the ranks from virtual obscurity to command.  

You'll learn about:

The undistinguished Hiram Ulysses Grant 
The Mexican War and marriage
The failure 
War to the rescue 
The triumphant General Grant 
The war hero president 
Government: The next battlefield
The last battle  


He was a modest man with a series of failures behind him, but when success came to him on the battlefield, it brought a nation back to wholeness. Grant faced financial ruin, alcoholism, family trials, and cancer with the same steady courage that he employed in battle. He is one of the most famous, yet also one of the least well-known, of America’s heroes, well worth an introduction.
