Publisher's Summary

It is July 10, 1863, and Baltimore is in the hands of the Army of Northern Virginia under the command of Robert E. Lee. Shattered remnants of the Army of the Potomac have fallen back into Washington, digging in, preparing to make a desperate stand. Six days earlier General Ulysses S. Grant and his army of 60,000 had taken Vicksburg. The last telegram out of Washington before the rebels cut the line changed all that. Grant and his men were to come east and save the Union. Now two of America's greatest generals will face off in a battle that could decide the fate of a nation. Once again, Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen have created a brilliant story of how the Civil War could have unfolded. In Grant Comes East, they use their years of research and expertise to take their legions of fans on another remarkable journey.

Great Story!!!

I really liked this book. Although fiction, it weaves an interesting tale that rings of actual history. The narrator adds a lot to this book with interesting inflection and accents. I can't wait for the next one.
