Historic Sites I Visited in Researching 'Victor! The Final Battle of Ulysses S. Grant'



A photo of me and my son, David, visiting the Cold Harbor Battlefield in 2019 while doing research for Victor! The Final Battle of Ulysses S. Grant.


My interest in the final two years in the life of Ulysses S. Grant began sometime in the 1990s when I first viewed ‘The Civil War’ by Ken Burns. I am thankful to Ken Burns, along with writers Ric Burns and Geoffrey C. Ward, for setting me on this path of discovery. Living in Virginia during those years, I began a tradition of visiting Civil War battlefields that continues to this day.

My thanks and gratitude to the amazing battlefield guides and expert staff at the following battlefields, museums, national parks, and historical sites that I have visited while doing research on Ulysses S. Grant and the Civil War:
