Description

Ulysses S. Grant is justly celebrated as the author of one of the finest military autobiographies ever written, yet many readers of his Personal Memoirs are unaware that during his army years Grant wrote hundreds of intimate and revealing letters to his wife, Julia Dent Grant. Presented with an introduction by acclaimed biographer Ron Chernow, My Dearest Julia collects more than eighty of these letters, beginning with their engagement in 1844 and ending with the Union victory in 1865.

Author Biography

Born in Ohio in 1822, Ulysses S. Grant graduated from West Point and fought in the U.S.-Mexican War before marrying Julia Dent in 1848. During the Civil War Grant proved himself to be the conflict's greatest general and became a hero to millions. His two terms as president, 1869-77, were marked by conflict and controversy, but he won renewed admiration for writing his brilliant Personal Memoirs while suffering from throat cancer, completing them days before his death in 1885. Ron Chernow is the prizewinning author of seven books--including, most recently, the national best seller Grant--and the recipient of the 2015 National Humanities Medal. His first book, The House of Morgan, won the National Book Award, Washington: A Life won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography, and Alexander Hamilton--the inspiration for the Broadway musical--won the American History Book Prize. He resides in Brooklyn, New York.
