In his mock-autobiography, the “real” Ulysses S. Grant reveals the staggering truth behind the Civil War, including his secret identity. Showing why he earned the titles “Savior of the Union” and “Most Infamous Drunk in U.S. Military History”, Grant embarks here on a hilariously self-deprecating tour of duty. Whether putting Generals Burnside, Hooker, and Robert E. Lee in their place, speculating on Lincoln’s assassination, or listening to foulmouthed General Sherman wax poetic on his various gunshot wounds, Grant offers an amusingly warped perspective on the Civil War — and a surprisingly poignant view of 19th century America.
