Mark Twain was resounding in his praise of Grant's prose: "this is the simple soldier, who, all untaught of the silken phrase-makers, linked words

together with an art surpassing the art of the schools and put into them a something which will still bring to American ears, as long as America shall

last, the roll of his vanished drums and the tread of his marching hosts." That Twain was essentially the publisher of the work should not entirely

devalue his judgment. Grant's autobiography sold over 300,000 sets and has remained continually in print since its first appearance.

I encourage you to ask any questions about the book. I will be happy to provide more images at your request.
