/ -- In the greatest victory of his life, Ulysses S. Grant overcame bankruptcy and fought cancer to save his family from ruin. With Mark Twain as his publisher, Grant wrote an American classic – his Personal Memoirs – confronting Jim Crow racism while securing the future of his wife. This inspiring story is featured in the new book by Dr. Craig von Buseck, Victor! The Final Battle of Ulysses S. Grant, from LPC Books!
Known for his work in history and biography, Craig's book, I Am Cyrus: Harry S. Truman and the Rebirth of Israel, won the prestigious Selah award and was nominated for the Truman Award by the Truman Presidential Library.
Now Craig presents the story of a man of faith, courage, and conviction in a time where people are desperately seeking role models. One Victor! reviewer wrote: "I was cheering on Grant's final victory over enormous adversity, while simultaneously mourning the absence of such a great servant-leader in our day."
In writing his Personal Memoirs, Grant also fought the "Lost Cause" view that the war was not about slavery, but state's rights. Like Lincoln, Grant viewed the Civil War as a divine punishment for the sin of slavery. "There had to be an end to slavery," Grant explained. "...we were fighting an enemy with whom we could not make a peace. We had to destroy him."
U.S. Grant was underestimated throughout his remarkable life. Then his reputation and legacy were maligned by pro-Confederate 'Lost Cause' writers. In the last 30 years, historians have begun a reexamination of Grant's contribution to American culture and the cause of freedom.
In 1900, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt made this statement regarding the place of U.S. Grant in the American political pantheon: "...as the generations slip away, as the dust of conflict settles, and as through the clearing air we look back with keener wisdom into the nation's past, mightiest among the mighty dead loom the three great figures of Washington, Lincoln, and Grant."
Through the release of 'Victor,' von Buseck hopes to be part of restoring Grant to his rightful place in American history.
'Left Behind' writer Jerry Jenkins says of 'Victor': "Craig von Buseck is one of my favorite historical writers. You won't be disappointed."
