About this item

Grant Rising is an inspired, one-volume summary in maps and text of Ulysses S. Grant's famous battles in 1862 - including Donelson and Shiloh - and also his early life, including his frontier and Mexican War service - as well as his minor engagement in the Western Theater of the American Civil War.

Grant Rising features techniques that portray Civil War battles in a new way, such as shaded relief topography, giving the maps a three-dimensional appearance. Plus the use of different color tints to represent command relationships makes it easier to determine which brigades reported to which divisions and corps at a glance. Using slightly different shades of blue and red also allow for easy differentiation of many units on a single map, making the action easier to understand.

Grant Rising is a truly new type of map reference book as well as a remarkable history of Grant's early life and career through 1862.
