  • Crucible of Command: Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee--The War They Fought, the Peace They Forged

    They met in person only four times, yet these two men—Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee—determined the outcome of America's most divisive war and cast larger-than-life shadows over their reunited nation. They came from vastly different backgrounds: Lee from a distinguished family of waning fortunes; Grant, a young man on the make in a new America. Differing circumstances colored their outlooks on life: Lee, the melancholy realist; Grant, the incurable optimist.Then came the Civil War that made them both commanders of armies, leaders of men...

  • Who Was Ulysses S. Grant?

    Ulysses S. Grant certainly does not have the typical war hero “back story.” Although a graduate of West Point, he never wanted to be a soldier and was terrified when he first saw battle. However, during the Civil War, after many Northern generals failed to deliver decisive victories, U.S. Grant rose to what the times required. He took command of Union forces, helped bring the war to an end in 1865, and went on to serve two terms as president....

  • 1858: Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant and the War They Failed to See

    "Highly recommended–a gripping narrative of the critical year of 1858 and the nation's slide toward disunion and war. Chadwick is especially adept at retelling the intense emotions of this critical time, particularly especially in recounting abolitionist opposition to the Fugitive Slave Act and Jefferson Davis's passionate defense of this institution. For readers seeking to understand how individuals are agents of historical change will find Chadwick's account of the failed leadership of President James Buchanan, especially compelling."-G. Ku...

  • A House Divided: The Lives of Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee (Jules Archer History for Young Readers)

    A House Divided is an exciting introduction to two of the most fascinating players in the American Civil War. Ulysses S. Grant was gruff and sloppy, the son of a hardworking but uneducated man opposed to slavery. Robert E. Lee, a slave owner himself, was a polite, aristocratic Virginia gentleman who descended from the Revolutionary War hero “Light-Horse Harry.” Both men studied at West Point but developed very different tactics—Lee proved to be a careful strategist who made brilliant use of standard military tactics, while Grant was instinc...

  • Who Was Robert E. Lee?

    Robert E. Lee seemed destined for greatness. His father was a Revolutionary War hero and at West Point he graduated second in his class! In 1861, when the Southern states seceded from the Union, Lee was offered the opportunity to command the Union forces. However, even though he was against the war, his loyalty to his home state of Virginia wouldn’t let him fight for the North. Despite the South’s ultimate defeat, General Robert E. Lee remains one of the United States’ true military heroes....

  • Stories of Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee

    (Softbound) As you read the stories of these two great men, you will see, perhaps through new eyes, the fact that the Civil War was fought by two equally, honorable sides who were passionate about their rights. Although the slave issue played a prominent role, it certainly was not the only issue. We have seldom been left with a greater example of honor and humility of heart. Lee fought as a brilliant general, but relied on his faith for strength: "I am not concerned with results. God's will ought to be our aim and I am quite contented that His ...
