In his time, Ulysses S. Grant was routinely grouped with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in the "Trinity of Great American Leaders." But the battlefield commander-turned-commander-in-chief fell out of favor in the twentieth century. In AMERICAN ULYSSES, New York Times bestselling author Ronald C. White argues that we need to once more revise our estimates of him in the twenty-first.

Ronald C. White has written three bestselling books on Abraham Lincoln. He earned his Ph.D. at Princeton and has lectured extensively on Lincoln, including at Gettysburg and the White House. He is a Fellow at the Huntington Library and a Senior Fellow of the Trinity Forum, Washington, D.C. White lives in La Cañada Flintridge, CA.
