Book Picks

This week, I am featuring three books on an individual who has historically been a controversial figure in Civil War studies. Some love him, some hate him, some dismiss him as a clumsy drunk while others praise him as a brilliant strategist. And then there’s his presidency. Look out!! I’ve selected books on his military and political career and a look at Grant’s legacy in American memory. These are all great books and you can find them at the top of the list on The Rogue Historian Amazon page. Huzzah!!
