On the Trail of Grant and Lee

by Frederick Trevor Hill

Description:  Follow the strangely interwoven trails of Grant and Lee, Civil War generals on opposing sides, as they are recounted in this book. Both were Americans, and widely as they differed in opinions, tastes and sympathies, each exhibited qualities of mind and character which should appeal to all their fellow countrymen and make them proud of the land that gave them birth. Neither man, in his life, posed before the public as a hero, and the writer makes no attempt to place either of them on a pedestal. Theirs is a very human story, requiring neither color nor concealment, but illustrating a high development of those traits that make for manhood and national greatness.
