An in-depth look at President, General, and Diplomat U.S. Grant- whose career has been muddled in controversy- and whose name has been moving up rapidly on the "Best Presidents" list since his memoirs, currently housed at Mississippi State University, have been published by Harvard Press.
In this interview with Editor Louis P. Gallo we discuss Grant's life and legacy- and discover some very interesting facts about Grant that contradict some of the misconceptions about his character and presidency that have taken root through the past years in the public consciousness. You'll also find out why his memoirs were entrusted to Mississippi.....where memories of what Grant did to Vicksburg are still smoldering.
Discussed: Mexican American War-wife Julia-Grant Compared to Lee-Shiloh-Vicksburg-World Tour-Son Fred-Indian Wars-Reconstruction-Presidency
