Item description for Lee and Grant by William M. S. Rasmussen & Robert S. Tilton...
Overview A catalog of an exhibition assesses the lives, careers, and historical impact of the Civil War generals.
Publishers Description Generals Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant are without a doubt two of the most important, and heavily published about, figures in nineteenth-century American history. Their often controversial characters, lives and careers are intrinsically linked with the American Civil War, and subsequent written histories on both individuals have frequently been shaped by the positions and roles both took up during that conflict. However, curiously, despite the enormous amount of published material on the Civil War, including individual biographies of Lee and Grant, there is almost nothing that has been published which looks at these two figures together and which compares them over an extended period of time. This new, illustrated book is the first to combine fascinating images and written narrative text. Together with the accompanying touring exhibition, it provides a major re-assessment of the lives, careers, and historical impact of Lee and Grant. It also charts the development of historical thought and popular attitudes towards both figures in the years since the outbreak of the Civil War.
