Ulysses S Grant Under Fire


An online talk by Joseph Rose.


We opened our 2021 online programme on January 23 with a highly controversial talk and discussion on the life and historiography of one of the Civil War’s most important characters, Ulysses S Grant.


Joseph Rose presented evidence from his book, Grant Under Fire that challenges Ulysses S. Grant’s reputation as a military genius and reliable chronicler of the Civil War, in particular suggesting that statements in his memoirs are contradicted by Grant's original reports and those of others at the time. If you missed Joseph's presentation, you can watch it here on YouTube.
