[Civil War Memoir] Grant, Ulysses S.
Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant in 2 Volumes Complete.
A Fine tight set in full brown sheep leather bindings with green and red spine labels. This set is complete with the facsimile letter of Grant's original terms for Lee's surrender that is often missing. Mark Twain was the publisher of this monumental memoir as well as its editor and proof reader. Twain was extremely fond of and a close friend of Grant and encouraged the President and war hero to write his memoirs. Grant was dying of throat cancer but completed his two volume opus, dictating the second volume to a secretary. Twain noted in a letter to his daughter that the manuscript was not even set yet and 20,000 sets had been ordered from only two states. "Wait till you hear from the other 37." Grant finished his memoirs on July 18, 1885 and died five days later on July 23rd. Following his death, advance orders of the memoirs reached 300,000 sets realizing close to $450,000 for his family which was otherwise penniless. In a 1992 New York Times book review, General Schwarzkopf is quoted as using Grant's two-volume work as his model, calling it the finest military history of the Civil War.

[Civil War Memoir] Grenier, Captain Henry C.
General Phil Sheridan As I Knew Him.
A Near Fine tight copy in blue cloth binding with gold stamping on the front cover and spine. Philip Henry Sheridan (1831 1888) was a career United States Army officer and a Union general in the American Civil War. His career was noted for his rapid rise to major general and his close association with General-in-chief Ulysses S. Grant, who transferred Sheridan from command of an infantry division in the Western Theater to lead the Cavalry Corps of the Army of the Potomac in the East. In 1864, he defeated Confederate forces in the Shenandoah Valley and his destruction of the economic infrastructure of the Valley, called "The Burning" by residents, was one of the first uses of scorched earth tactics in the war. In 1865, his cavalry pursued Gen. Robert E. Lee and was instrumental in forcing his surrender at Appomattox. Sheridan fought in later years in the Indian Wars of the Great Plains.
