THE MAN WHO SAVED THE UNION Ulysses Grant in War and Peace

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

History • 28 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Ulysses Grant is one of our more underappreciated presidents. Most people know him only as the Civil War general who defeated Lee and as a president whose tenure was marked by corruption. But this in-depth biography shows a more complex and accomplished man. He rose from obscurity to find he had a genius for battle. As president, he championed equal rights for freedmen, something no president would do for nearly a century. Stephen Hoye offers an even and engaging reading. A book this length can be daunting, but Hoye varies his tone and pacing ever so slightly to keep listeners engaged. He changes his voice slightly for direct quotations, not to impersonate the speaker but to offer a kind of oral quotation marks. R.G.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
