|Hi Susan To be honest I haven't read it either, because I'm not really in to fiction myself. But several people on the Ulysses S. Grant Home Page forum board did discuss it and it didn't go over very well. I think one of them mentioned a dialogue in the book. between Sherman and a doctor, who accompanies him to meet Grant and the President at City Point, in which Sherman tells the doctor to see if Grant is drunk Sherman then goes on to say that Grant never writes better then when he's drunk. It didn't go over well on the Grant board.
