Re: History of the World

I just finished watching the History channel documentary of Ulysses S. Grant.
I must admit I didn't do to much study on what is a truly remarkable man.
From what I could find out, and which I don't think was in the docu., he was a card player.
The siege of Vicksburg, and how he had the ships go down the Mississippi River, past the enemy artillery, in order to transport his troops across, was a true gamble.
It would be a shame if he's not in the book.
