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.

Disappointing

The beginning of the book almost became its end for me. The first couple chapters are less personal reminiscences than mini biographies. If I wasn't familiar with President Grant I would not have been interested in the book. I don't need nor do I want a brief recapitulation of the standard bio. Towards the middle and end the book greatly improved and started to deliver on its promise. Sometimes it was interesting to note how much was revealed of those remembering instead of Pres. Grant. If only the first half could have been true to the promise.
