Hello, my name is Thomas Edward Grant, Ph.D., author of the latest biography on US Grant. (Published, December, 2017) The book is titled, Ulysses S. Grant: Primogenitor of American Civil Propriety, Amazon.com Books. As direct descendants of a common Grant family ancestry, we share the distinctive forces of inherent family nature and nurture. The book is a response to a century or more of derogatory and unfair treatment of Ulysses S. Grant, a family prodigy. But the book is more than a long overdue defensive work about Grant himself, it is the summation of years of original research about its principal subject and of the historic principles he lived to defend. Grant was not only a product of his individual life and times but the stuff of his North American ancestors. US Grant was a product of several centuries of patriotic kindred spirits that parallel none other than the origin and authentic historical history of the United States of America.
