US Grant's Last Gift (Episode #41, 18 May 2021)

in this episode, I cover the last year of US Grant's life.  To me, his last year was one of the heroic chapters in his inspiring life.   Faced with terminal throat cancer, and financially destitute, Grant spent his his hours writing his memoir so that he could leave a financial legacy to his wife and family.  That last year truly demonstrated his character and qualities that made him such a central figure in our Nation's history.  


His last year is one of many reasons why I have such a man crush on US Grant.  Listen more to see why.


Also, check out the most excellent biography of US Grant: Grant by Jean Edward Smith.   It's by far one of the best biographies on Grant.
