Who’s buried in Grant’s tomb? If you want to learn more about the U.S. General overshadowed by his opponent, Robert E. Lee, try this new biography by respected biographer Ron Chernow. You’ll learn not just about the Civil War, but also about the troubled times that followed for our country, where Grant struggled to continue Lincoln’s legacy. This is not a light work, but it is shorter than the two-volume classic, Personal Memoirs, that Grant struggled to finish while dying of cancer so that he could provide financially for his family.
