I ended up with a bit of spare money in a book scholarship and was very excited to pick up a copy of "The Man Who Saved the Union". I've been itching to read it ever since your review! So this is a thank you for always keeping me updated with potential new reading material. It is much appreciated.

Awesome, I’m glad to hear that!  I’m fortunate enough to get a ton of great books to review for AND Magazine, so I love being able to share my thoughts and make recommendations for my fellow history fans. 

Everyone is welcome to connect with me on Goodreads, as well.  Since I don’t always have the time to write a full-scale review on all of the books that I read, I’m going to try to remember to at least use Goodreads to post a short review (or a star rating at the very least!).  I’m training myself to go to Goodreads daily so that I am consistent about it, but you’ll have to be patient with me because, as anyone who follows me on Facebook and (especially) Twitter knows, I tend to go through phases.

You made a solid choice with The Man Who Saved the Union: Ulysses Grant in War and Peace (BOOKKINDLE).  I think it was one of the best books of the year, and that’s no surprise since H.W. Brands always delivers.  I wouldn’t hesitate to say that it’s the best book written about Grant other than the one that General Grant wrote about himself.
