Help Make the Inspiring Story of 'Victor!' Known
I'm excited to announce that Victor! The Final Battle of Ulysses S. Grant will be released to the public on Tuesday, April 6!
I believe this true and fascinating story about the final two years in the life of General Grant will be an inspiration to many people. U.S. Grant was underestimated and misunderstood throughout his remarkable life. Then after his death, his reputation and legacy were maligned by pro-Confederate 'Lost Cause' writers and historians throughout most of the Twentieth Century. It has only been in the last 30 years that historians have begun the important reexamination of Grant's achievements and contribution to both American culture and to the cause of freedom throughout the world.
In 1900, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt made a remarkable statement regarding the place of Ulysses S. Grant in the American political pantheon: "…as the generations slip away, as the dust of conflict settles, and as through the clearing air we look back with keener wisdom into the nation’s past, mightiest among the mighty dead loom the three great figures of Washington, Lincoln, and Grant."
My hope is that 'Victor!' will be part of the restoration of Grant to his rightful place in the American pantheon.
I'm writing to ask for your help in telling this important story by being a part of the book launch party and doing these three things:
1) On April 6, will you post a message on your Facebook page and other social media announcing the release of 'Victor!' and sending them to the book's Facebook page?: www.facebook.com/USGrantVictorBook/
2) Will you post this 'Victor!' video promo link on your Facebook page, website, and other social media? https://youtu.be/_0UhNQkIrjc
3) Will you buy a copy of 'Victor!' at GrantVictorBook.com for yourself and your family?
We will hold a live launch party during my weekly 'Stories & Myths' Facebook Live program next Thursday, April 8, at 7 p.m. (EST). Please join me and my guest, Col. Aaron Zook (US Army, retired) as we discuss the life and achievements of Ulysses S. Grant.
Thank you for your help in sharing the remarkable story of Grant's heroic final effort to save his family from poverty -- and to stand for the freedom won in the Civil War and against the growing tide of Jim Crow racism in America.
