Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant (Hardcover) by Rh Value Publishing

In that year he began to write his memoirs- an undertaking the modest Grant had always before resisted- in the hope that the resulting royalties might in some measure help to provide for his family after his death. They did so handsomely.
