American History is replete with rags-to-riches tales, but it is hard to think of one that compares with that of Ulysses S. Grant. In the spring of 1861, Grant was a modest clerk in his father's leather goods store. Within three years, he would become commander of all armies of the United States and go on to win the Civil War. Within eight, he would be elected president. His remarkable story is truly an inspiration to leaders from all walks of life.
"Fascinating, Grant's wisdom and courage are finally depicted as a model for the ages."
-- Robert Novak, syndicated columnist
