Grant’s efforts failed as America chose settlement over fairness and permitted the influence of Jim Crow to wash over the southern states, Tribune Star reported. The book is more than worthy as a good read for those who want to know more about one of America’s most notable generals and most ignored president.   “Grant” is yet another book (like last year’s “American Ulysses,” by Ronald C. White) that means to correct what used to be the conventional wisdom .   Chernow talks about his new biography of Ulysses S. Grant, and Mike Wallace discusses “Greater Gotham: A History of New York City From to ”. George Dietlein, 55 of Grant, Neb. passed away Feb. 19, at the Perkins County Hospital in Grant. Funeral service for Betty J. Lawson, 75, of Norfolk, Nebraska, formerly of Grant, were held Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the Stonacek Funeral Chapel in Norfolk with Rev. Terry Buol officiating. Stanley R. Loeffler, 81 of Grant, passed away.

General Grant was a 1,ton three-masted barque built in Maine in the United States in and registered in Boston, Massachusetts. She was named after Ulysses S. Grant and owned by Messers Boyes, Richardson & Co. She had a timber hull with a length of ft, beam of ft and depth of ft. While on her way from Melbourne to London, General Grant crashed into Fate: Wrecked 13 May , Auckland Island.   It’s a safe bet that Ron Chernow’s monumental new biography, Grant (Penguin Press, pp., ***½ out of four stars), won’t inspire a rapping, rocking Broadway juggernaut the way his earlier. Ulysses S. Grant's life has typically been misunderstood. All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and inept businessman, fond of drinking to excess; or as the triumphant but brutal Union general of the Civil War; or as a credulous and hapless president whose tenure came to symbolize the worst excesses of the Gilded Age/5(K).

But that's the least important thing about this book. He demonstrates that--to both the Union and the Confederacy--that the U.S. Civil War was undoubtably about not only slavery, but white supremacy/5. General Grant by Matthew Arnold with a Rejoinder by Mark Twain presents conflicting essays and cultures. Matthew Arnold's essay on Grant praised the general and his posthumously published Memoirs, but to many Americans its tone seemed patronizing of their hero and country.
