"The marginal annotation of this edition has been undertaken with a view to supplementing the personal narrative by references not only to some of the books with which the author refreshed his memory before entering upon and during his autobiographical labors, but also, to a limited extent, to works in which fuller details may be found concerning incidents which were necessarily briefly treated by General Grant, either by reason of his own connections with the action being limited to a small details (as in some of the Mexican War scenes), or on account of the haste with which the [first edition of the] book was perforce completed." --Frederick D. Grant, Preface to the Second Edition.[Frederick Dent Grant (1850-1912) was the eldest son of Ulysses S. Grant.] / "Books, reviews, pamphlets, etc., cited in the marginal annotation to this edition": v. 1, p. xviii-xix. ¶ Ulysses S. Grant (1822-1885) stands as a pivotal figure in American history, known for his roles as a Union general during the Civil War and the 18th President of the United States. Born Hiram Ulysses Grant in Ohio, he entered the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and served with distinction in the Mexican-American War. During the Civil War, Grant's strategic acumen and tenacity led to key victories, including the capture of Vicksburg, a turning point in the war. His success on the battlefield led to his appointment as Commanding General in 1864, and he accepted the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox in 1865, effectively ending the Civil War. Grant's presidency (1869-1877) was marked by efforts to ensure civil rights for newly freed African Americans, including the enforcement of Radical Reconstruction in the South and the passage of the Fifteenth Amendment, granting African American men the right to vote. His administration faced challenges, including an economic depression and accusations of corruption. In his later years, Grant penned his memoirs, which have been praised for their insight and literary style. Despite the controversies of his presidency, Grant is often celebrated for his unwavering commitment to equality and his military leadership during one of the most tumultuous periods in American history." --Bing. ¶  Guerre du Mexique, 1846-1848 -- Récits personnels.
