Hello,

My name is Louie P. Gallo and I am an editor at the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library. I am excited and honored to be a part of such a wonderful group of Civil War buffs. I look forward to learning from all of you.

In the meantime, as a staff member of the USGPL, I am pleased to announce the upcoming publication of the first comprehensively annotated edition of Grant's Personal Memoirs, which includes over 2,000 explanatory notes. Published by Harvard University Press's Belknap imprint, it will be available for pre-order in September 2017 and will be released in October!

If you go to Harvard University Press's webpage, you can find more information on the book's release date and pricing.

Thank you for reading this post and I look forward to many constructive conversations on the subject of the American Civil War.

Welcome, Louie! Interesting, I just listed The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant as the Civil War related book that impacted me the most. I will have to let my staff know how much more agreeable I will be to work with if this book magically shows up on my desk :smile:

Welcome, Louie! We look forward to learning from you!

As a huge Grant fan, I have seen your name before, so it's a thrill to see you join up here at CWT. I guess you probably noticed that we have a whole forum on Grant in the Biography forums.

So excited to hear that we won't have to wait much longer for the annotated memoirs. Over 2,000 explanatory notes, oh my! Could you let us know as soon as it becomes available for pre-order? You could post a notice about it in the "Book & Movie Review Tent" forum.

I will add you to the directory we're compiling of CWT members who are authors. Do you have any other books in print that we should know about besides the memoirs?

Thanks so much, and welcome to CWT!
