Product Description

This collection of 84 letters written by Ulysses Grant to his wife reveals a side of the famed general that you've never seen.  Grant's letters to Julia Dent Grant reveal a tender intimacy that seems to run counter to the gruff, self-confident military leader.  Some of the letters profess his devotion to his wife even while hastily written during battle:  "…in the midst of grape and musket shots, my Dearest Julia and my love for her are ever in my mind."  The book features an introduction by noted biographer Ron Chernow.
