Book: The Man Who Saved the Union: Ulysses Grant in War and Peace


Great biography. I knew very little of Grant prior to this book and a lot of what I thought I knew was wrong or distorted. For example, although rumors of his drinking problem persisted throughout much of his life and color his legacy, there is very little actual evidence of it after the early part of his military career, and no evidence that it affected his presidency. Now I will have to read his autobiography.
