This short book offers excerpts from Grant’s letters and other writings across his career, edited and with commentary by a leading Grant scholar.
‘To Rescue the Republic’ by Bret Baier
An excellent introduction to Grant for a general reader, this book’s focus on how Grant helped avert a second Civil War at the end of his presidency is relevant for today and told engagingly by a surprisingly evenhanded Fox News anchor.
‘General Grant’ by Matthew Arnold
Matthew Arnold may have been a snob but he was one who could appreciate the character and achievements of Ulysses S. Grant.
