A sweeping and dramatic portrait of Ulysses S. Grant, one of America's most underappreciated presidents. Chernow's masterful biography sheds light on Grant's military genius and his lifelong struggle with alcoholism, as well as his work to seek justice for black Americans. With meticulous research and literary brilliance, Chernow brings to life the man that Walt Whitman called "the greatest hero." A must-read for anyone interested in American history. Named one of the best books of the year by Goodreads, Amazon, The New York Times, and more.

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
