WEBSTER COMPANY, NEW YORK, IN 1885 UNION BOOKSHELF #35 Written frantically while in a race with death, these recollections rank with the best of the Civil War period. Civil War Books Considered among the greatest of military memoirs. The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant is an autobiography of American President and General Ulysses S. This historic, two-volume set focuses mainly on the general's actions during the American Civil War, but also covers Grants early life, cadetship, and frontier and Mexican War experience. Written as Grant was dying of throat cancer in 1885, the set was published by Mark Twain shortly after Grant's death. The memoirs were a financial and critical success and are still praised for their high literary qualities as one of the finest military memoirs ever written.
