Charles Calhoun book signing
Historian and Author Charles Calhoun will be signing and discussing his new book, The Presidency of Ulysses S. Grant.
“Eminent historian Charles Calhoun’s new book takes Grant’s presidency beyond the superficial corrupt label it has been dismissed with into a more accurate place of importance. Without soft peddling the difficulties of Grant’s time in the Executive Mansion, Calhoun’s new book demonstrates just how important a president this quiet man was. Well-researched and well-written, this book is a must read for scholars and others interested in gaining accurate insight about a major American leader.”―John F. Marszalek, Giles Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History and executive director of the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library, Mississippi State University
“Once deemed one of the nation’s worst presidents by scholars and pundits alike, Ulysses S. Grant’s reputation as a politician and chief executive has improved during the past three decades. Now comes Charles W. Calhoun’s comprehensive overview of the eighteenth president’s administration, examining both its achievements and shortcomings with discerning insight. At last Grant can claim fair treatment in this judicious study.”—Brooks D. Simpson, author of The Reconstruction Presidents
