    schema:description ""In this new short biography of Ulysses S. Grant, leading scholars provide an accessible introduction to Grant and his legacy. Grant led Federal forces to victory in the Civil War, was the first modern American President, and authored his memoirs, which would eventually become one of the greatest books of non-fiction by an American author. The authors present the latest scholarship on Grant, providing the necessary insight to appreciate Grant and correct the myths which for too long clouded his true importance. They highlight specific moments or relationships in Grant's life--including his connection to key figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain--and elaborate on the more controversial elements of Grant's legacy, such as his alcoholism and corruption during the Grant presidency. Not to overlook his military accomplishments, they devote time to the study of Grant's war strategy and military career, beginning as early as his reluctant enrollment into West Point. From humble birth to tragic death, this new take on Ulysses S. Grant instills readers with a deeper understanding of the military legend's nuanced personal history and an appreciation for the late president's tragic and triumphant story."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
