Ronald C. White. American Ulysses: A Life of Ulysses S. Grant. New York, Random House (2016).
Author Ronald C. White has the range of skills required to raise Grant’s standing as military leader, as president, and as human being. This is a tour de force, but promise me that you also will read—or reread—Grant’s Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, which continues to be an American historical and literary classic.
In his Author! Author! blog series, Museum president Gary T. Johnson highlights works that draw on our collection.
