One of the first truly comprehensive biography of the general. Begun by the late Lloyd Lewis with his critically acclaimed Captain Sam Grant, this great project was continued after his death by Bruce Catton at the request of Mrs. Lewis. Employing Lewis's notes and conducting additional research, Mr. Catton produced the second volume of the biography, Grant Moves South. It was received with unanimous accord

This set includes CAPTAIN SAM GRANT by Lloyd Lewis completed just before his death in 1949. This first volume takes Grant from his birth in a small village on the Ohio frontier to that triumphant day in 1861 when an inconspicuous and seemingly defeated man turned at bay against ill fortune and began his comeback as a man and as a soldier. At the request of Mrs. Lloyd Lewis, Bruce Catton, noted historian, finished the project. Volume two, of this set is GRANT MOVES SOUTH. Grant would move slowly, relentlessly down the Mississippi River, the very lifeline of the South, and would not stop until he had severed its entire length from the domain of his enemy. Volume three, GRANT TAKES COMMAND, follows Grant in the summer of 1863 when after the climactic battle at Vicksburg, Lincoln's government was more interested in Ulysses Simpson Grant than any other man alive. Although he was the most successful soldier, few men in Washington had even met him.
