The life of America's greatest soldier, Ulysses S. Grant is startling, marvelous, and inspiring. He was the son of a western tanner who became the leader of the world's mightiest armies. He became the ruler of the greatest modern republic and a victorious general. It is an inspiration that how a broken and discouraged farmer and clerk became the foremost man of his day in the world. Grant’s story, as told in this book, is an example of persistence, determination and will, strength and zeal. The record of the struggles and successes of U. S. Grant is a lesson for young and old alike.
