Abstract:

Shifting from one distinct voice and viewpoint to the other, this intertwined biography achieves a novelistic sweep while taking full advantage of transcripts and negotiations, newspaper accounts, journals, and primary sources, as well as each man's autobiography. From the early days that shaped them to the battle that consumed them, and the politics that ultimately betrayed them both, their quests for victory and immortality offer great insight into some of the most important events in American history-and a unique perspective of the cultures from which they sprang.
