Synopsis

From the Western frontier to the battlefields of Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Franklin, Petersburg, and Richmond, Grant saw the war from the front lines and made the decisions that affected lives on a day-to-day basis. His writings provide a revealing look into the life of the commander in chief of the Union army as well as the seminal eyewitness account of the War between the States.

The Civil War Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant is a popular abridgment of his two-volume Personal Memoirs, which he arranged to have published to provide for his family after his death. (It was a huge bestseller and broke all records in American publishing at the time.) He died less than one week after completing its writing.

This abridgment covers Grant's experiences in the Civil War, from the first shot at Sumter to Appomattox, giving the reader a front-line seat next to the greatest Union general of the war.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Grant explains the Civil War as he understood it, insisting that the underlying cause was first and foremost slavery, with which “the great majority of the people of the North had no particular quarrel” until the Southern states insisted that their Northern neighbors apprehend and return runaways.
