Read the recent Grant bio by Ron Chernow. A fantastic book that chronicles Grant’s amazing narrative. He went from being a failed businessman (broke, couldn’t afford rent in a SF flophouse) to a transformative military commander to a president who combatted white supremacists.      source

This book is obscenely long and sometimes dragged. But at the end when you find out Grant had chosen Union and Confederate generals to be his pallbearers, I cried. He was a great American.      source
