Reporter John Russell Young was invited to make the two year tour around the world with former President Ulysses S. Grant and his wife Julia. He recorded conversations with General Grant talking about everything from politics to people he’d known. But the best of the conversations are on the men and battles of the Civil War.
Grant provides his thoughts on Lincoln, Sherman, Sheridan, Lee, Thomas, Longstreet and more. He discusses the siege of Vicksburg, the Battle of Shiloh, and the surrender at Appomattox.
