Summary Grant by Ron Chernow

Free download Î Grant by Ron Chernow Ron Chernow º 7 Free read Summary Grant by Ron Chernow 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 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.

By the end of Grant s second term white Democrats through the redeemer movement had reclaimed control of every southern state winning in peacetime much of the power lost combat They promulgated a view of the Civil War as a righteous cause that had nothing to do with slavery but only states rights to which an incredulous James Longstreet once replied I never heard of any other cause of the uarrel than slavery No myth making here just beautifully researched history There s no way it s perfect I don t think that s possible Ulys as friends and family called him as an officer as President and as a failed businessman Like every other addict resisting his addiction or failing to resist is always part of the story Fortunately for him he had his wife Julia and some trusted friends to help
