Civil War hero and former President Ulysses S. Grant penned this autobiography in 1885, at the end of his life. In his Memoirs, he describes various life events, but devotes the most attention to his military career. Here we have Grant's firsthand account of his pivotal role in leading the Union Army to victory in the Civil War. The difficult choices and brave deeds that made him a great leader are recounted without arrogance or exaggeration. Grant's words are clear and forthright as he carefully paints an honest self-portrait. In his own words, on his own terms—here is one of the greats of American history, accessible and human beneath his legendary aura.
