U. S. Grant: American Hero, American Myth (Civil War America) By Joan Waugh
2009 | 384 Pages | ISBN: 0807833177 | PDF | 10 MB

At the time of his death in 1885, he was perceived as on a level with George Washington by former Unionists and Confederates alike. His memoirs were a bestseller. His image combined the honorable soldier and the generous victor: a heroic war leader who believed in the ideal of national reconciliation in both regional and racial contexts.
