ClassGraphic This study group is a continuation of the fall study group that covered the life of Ulysses S. Grant through the surrender of Lee’s army at Appomattox. The spring semester will concentrate on Grant’s presidency, with an emphasis on Reconstruction. We will review the fall semester by viewing the American Experience DVD, Ulysses S. Grant, Part 1: Warrior, covering Grant through the Civil War. This can be considered a standalone study group for anyone interested in Grant’s presidency and the period of Reconstruction. We will use two books: American Ulysses: A Life of Ulysses S. Grant, by Ronald C. White (Random House, 2017); and Splendid Failure: Postwar Reconstruction in the American South by Michael W. Fitzgerald (American Way Series: Ivan Dees Publisher, 2008). Join us to find out why Ulysses S. Grant, formerly ranked 33rd in a 2000 C-Span rating poll of historians, jumped to 22nd in the most recent 2017 poll — the greatest swing in rating
of any president in that time period.
