[PDF / Epub] ☄ Grant Author Ron Chernow – Motorrad-100.de Ulysses S Grant's life has typically been misunderstood All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and inept businessman fond of drinking to excess; or as the triumphant but brutal Union generUlysses S Grant's life has typically been misunderstood All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and inept businessman fond of drinking to excess; or as the triumphant but brutal Union general of the Civil War; or as a credulous and hapless president whose tenure came to symbolize the worst excesses of the Gilded Age These stereotypes don't come close to capturing adeuately his spirit and the sheer magnitude of his monumental accomplishments A biographer at the height of his powers Chernow has produced a portrait of Grant that is a masterpiece the first to provide a complete understanding of the general and president whose fortunes rose and fell with dizzying speed and freuency Before the Civil War Grant was flailing His business ventures had been dismal and despite distinguished service in the Mexican War he ended up resigning from the army in disgrace amid recurring accusations of drunkenn.

Ess But in the Civil War Grant began to realize his remarkable potential soaring through the ranks of the Union army prevailing at the Battle of Shiloh and in the Vicksburg campaign and ultimately defeating the legendary Confederate general Robert E Lee after a series of unbelievably bloody battles in Virginia Along the way Grant endeared himself to President Lincoln and became his most trusted general and the strategic genius of the war effort His military fame translated into a two term presidency but one plagued by corruption scandals involving his closest staff All the while Grant himself remained or less above reproach But importantly he never failed to seek freedom and justice for black Americans working to crush the Ku Klux Klan and earning the admiration of Frederick Douglass who called him 'the vigilant firm impartial and wise protector of my race After his presidency he was again brought low.

    ePUB Ron Chernow ↠ ↠ Grant PDF ´ grant epub, Grant MOBIThis is an exceptionally good book It is well researched It is comprehensive and thorough It is so comprehensive and so thorough that one needs to take a break from it now and then What this means perhaps in reality though is that the author should have in some parts lightened the tone related a humorous incident or switched to a less ponderous topic a topic easier to absorb just for a while to give the reader a bit of a break Reading this book is a commitment and it is best to know this when you start The book covers just about everything that is known about Grant 1822 1885 His youth

    ePUB Ron Chernow ↠ ↠ Grant PDF ´ grant epub, Grant MOBII was born and raised in the southern part of the United States The name US Grant was spoken with disdain whether it was in a familial conversation at a historical site or in a history class in high school or at university Two Northern Generals Grant and Sherman have been firmly engrained in the minds of young southern minds as the worst two people who ever walked on American soil You can imagine how excited I was then to receive this book Grant to read for review What did I possibly need to know about this terrible man? Well as it turns out I had a LOT to learn The first thing that one needs to know Ulysses S Grant is not his real name It was a mistake made when he entered the military academy As with the remainder of the book this was the first of many historical facts that Chernow sets out to correct From his childhood until his death I doubt there ever has been a man in American history who has been painted so erroneously Perhaps it was due to the aftermath
