Ulysses S. Grant amounted to little more than a drunkard who supported him and his family by working odd jobs in the aftermath of the Mexican War. Yet by 1865, he was one of the most celebrated men in the United States and just four years away from capturing the presidency. As author George Walsh reveals, the Civil War afforded Grant the opportunity to do what he did best: win the trust of his subordinates and prosecute war without mercy.
