GENERAL GRANT and HIS CAMPAIGNS by JULIAN K. LARKE. Originally published in 1864. At the time of its writingt he subject of this volume being General Grant was of but forty-one years of age; had participated in two great wars; had captured, in the then present struggle, five hundred guns, one hundred thousand prisoners, and a quarter of a million small arms; has redeemed from rebel rule over fifty thousand square miles of territory; has reopened to the commerce of the world the mightiest highway on the globe; has stubbornly persued his settled path in spite of all obstacles, and has never een beaten. All this has been realized not with any desire to gain glory for himself, but for the sole and patriotic purpose of securing the restoration of the Union. Here the author has had the special oppotunity to watch the career of the General and provide the reader of this book with the story and history of one of the most successful military men of modern times. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
