After reading this well written, in-depth, biography on Hiram Ulysses Grant -or as many know him, Ulysses S. Grant -I've come to appreciate what he had done for our country. After taking this journey with H.W. Brands, you'll find yourself wondering, "how come we're not taught more about U.S. Grant as children?" If you read one biography this year, make it this one!
