Grant, Ulysses S
Report of Lieut. General U.S. Grant of the Armies of the United States. 1864-1865.
Washington: Government Printing Office, 1865. Rare Civil War era report cover inscribed by Ulysses S. Grant as Lieutenant General of the United States Army. One page report cover, inscribed by Grant, "Wm E. Dodge, Esq., New York, N.Y. U.S. Grant Lt. Gen." Abraham Lincoln promoted Grant to Lieutenant General of the United States Army on March , 1864, a rank which had only previously been held by George Washington. Following Lincolns assassination in April of 1865, Grant became America's first four-star general and played an important role in aiding Congress in their effort to reconstruct the South. In near fine condition. With a first edition of the complete report which is in very good condition. Rare and desirable. As Commanding General of the United States Army (1864-69), Grant worked closely with President Abraham Lincoln to lead the Union Army to victory over the Confederacy in the Civil War. He implemented Congressional Reconstruction, often at odds with Lincoln's successor, Andrew Johnson. Twice elected president, Grant led the Republicans in their effort to remove the vestiges of Confederate nationalism and slavery, protect African-American citizenship, and supported unbridled nationwide industrial expansionism during the Gilded Age.
