 About the Book 

Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E.

Grant and Robert E. Lee are two of the most important, and heavily published about, figures in nineteenth-century American history, but despite the enormous amount of published material on the Civil War, including individual biographies of Lee and Grant, there is almost nothing that has been published which looks at these two figures together and which compares them over an extended period of time. This new, fully illustrated book is the first to provide a major re-assessment of their lives, careers and historical impact.This illustrated volume contains over 270 images, pictorial representations of both men, as well as photographs and engravings, and images from popular culture. Leading authors William Rasmussen and Robert Tilton cover both these major figures’ lives, from their early education and military training at West Point, through the Civil War and its immediate aftermath, to their retirement.
