This 261 page book holds a 1900 copyright and was thought of as the ‘first book on American history used in schools in preparation for… more ‘formal’ textbook learning.’ It is however not for young readers. It is not a textbook but rather reads as an informational book that explains the history of the United States and is best read by 5th -8th graders but can also be used by high school students as a reference as well! It would be a good addition to read along side your normal curriculum.

About the book: Completed just days before his death and hailed by Mark Twain as “the most remarkable work of its kind since the Commentaries of Julius Caesar,” this is the now-legendary autobiography of ULYSSES SIMPSON GRANT (1822-1885), 18th president of the United States and the Union general who led the North to victory in the Civil War. Though Grant opens with tales of his boyhood, his education at West Point, and his early military career in the Mexican-American war of the 1840s, it is Grant’s intimate observations on the conduct of the Civil War, which make up the bulk of the work, that have made this required reading for history students, military strategists, and Civil War buffs alike. This unabridged edition features all the material that was originally published in two volumes in 1885 and 1886, including maps, illustrations, and the text of Grant’s July 1865 report to Washington on the state of the armies under his command.
