Ulysses S. Grant warrior, president ( Visual )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This biography of Ulysses S. Grant paints a nuanced portrait of one of America's most paradoxical leaders. The greatest hero of the Civil War, Grant was a brilliant military strategist who rose from obscurity to a rank held previously only by George Washington. However, the strength of the Confederate resistance forced Grant into a hard war that destroyed the South and led to his being labeled "a butcher." Propelled into the White House by his battlefield success, Grant lacked the political skills to deal with the issues of the era: reconstructing the South and managing the nation's rapidly expanding economy. His two terms were rocked by bitter racial conflict and corruption scandals. Seven years after leaving office, Grant was financially ruined by the collapse of an investment house in which he had placed his assets. He spent his final days in a race against time as he battled cancer while finishing his epic war memoirs

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the immediate post-war years, racial rioting became commonplace. President Andrew Johnson fanned the flames with his racist rhetoric and pardons for former Confederates, leading to his impeachment. Grant's feelings about the former slaves changed during this time: he now believed that American freedoms be extended to African Americans as well. He responded to calls to run for president and was easily elected. The country was struggling with Reconstruction, the Industrial Revolution, and forming a workable Indian policy. Grant mistakenly trusted people who brought scandal and failure to his presidency. After leaving office, Grant's financial fortunes rose and then fell. Grant spent his last days suffering from throat cancer and writing his memoirs, which restored his family's finances after his death

The Rockefellers ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John D. Rockefeller Sr. grew up with a devout mother and "scoundrel" father. When, as a young man, he was advised to make as much money as he could and then give away as much money as he could, he took the advice to heart. John Sr. built an oil refinery, then formed Standard Oil with the goal of dominating the entire industry. Within a few short months, he did. He formed Standard Oil Trust to manage his myriad companies. Ida Tarbell̕s series of damning articles about him and his business practices caused the wrath and anger of the public to turn on his whole family. As a young man, John Jr. found himself with the heavy burden of running Standard Oil when his father abruptly retired. Meanwhile, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Trust a monopoly and demanded it be broken up, the Rockefellers' wealth tripled. John Jr. was held guilty in the court of public opinion in the wake of a deadly labor dispute in Ludlow, CO. Just a few days after his mother's death, he headed to Colorado to make amends. By then, John Jr. controlled virtually the entire family business
The Rockefellers ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The third generation of Rockefellers -- "the Brothers" -- grew up in splendor and isolation. From childhood, Nelson emerged as the leader, overtaking his older brother John III as "dynastic heir." In an effort to redeem the family name, John Jr. created numerous and distinct philanthropies. He funded the construction of New York's Riverside Church; bought land in the Grand Teton mountains and donated it to the government for a national park; built with his wife Abby New York's Museum of Modern Art; then began the massive Rockefeller Center project completed during the height of the Great Depression. After active service during WWII, "the Brothers" took over the Rockefeller businesses. By 1952, John, Jr. retired, leaving his sons to advance their diverse interests. All excelled in their chosen fields, especially Nelson, who won the New York governor's seat easily. The presidency remained out of his reach, though he served for a year as Gerald Ford's vice president. He died a few years later under scandalous circumstances. The fourth generation of Rockefellers -- "the cousins" -- came of age questioning, and sometimes rejecting, the family legacy. After a century in the public eye, it is this generation that will determine the future of the Rockefeller name. Most seem dedicated to public service and philanthropy
