DVD 415.00 Ulysses S. Grant: warrior, president (ca. 220 min.) Reappraises Grant's career, from his pre-civil war days as a failed soldier, to his transformation into the greatest Union hero of the Civil War, to his presidency, rocked by scandal and economic depression, and to his last days, when he raced to finish his war memoirs as he was dying of cancer.
