    Sloppy proof-reading; too many obvious mistakes. The conclusion, for example, quotes General Meade on his impression of Grant, calling him Gordon C. Meade; the middle initial would be G. Interesting thesis, though; not proven, but much circumstantial, if the sloppiness does not include the basic research.

    This is about early development of anti-slavery movement happening in Clermont, Brown and Adams Co's and families associated with Ulysses S Grant before and influencing his mindset. I found this interesting as it relates to association by living in the town he was born in, plus potential reason his parents moved.

    This is a fascinating and well documented account of the local history, people, and events that surrounded Ulysses S. Grant in his formative years. It broadened my perspective, not only on Grant, but also on the Underground Railroad and the social and political forces in the decades leading up to the Civil War.
