Leadership, Life, and Legacy of ULYSSES S. GRANT

Ulysses S. Grant, the Civil War battlefield commander--turned--commander-in-chief fell out of favor with twentieth century historians. Yet in his day Grant was routinely grouped with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in the "Trinity of Great American Leaders." Not only was Grant a brilliant general, but as president he was also a passionate defender of equal rights in post-Civil War America, even using the power of the federal government to battle the Ku Klux Klan. Remarkably, Grant also wrote what is considered the greatest autobiography by an American leader.

Please join General (ret.) David H. Petraeus and Dr. Ron White, author of the New York Times bestseller A. Lincoln and the recently published American Ulysses, an epic new biography of U. S. Grant, as they discuss the life, leadership, and legacy of one of America's greatest--and most misunderstood presidents.

The event will take place in the Doheny Library Intellectual Commons (DML 233)

Doors will open at 12:00 PM, a light lunch will be provided from 12:00 - 12:30 PM
