Ulysses S. Grant by Robert Skimin( Visual )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 357 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
Ulysses S. Grant : warrior, president( Visual )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest Union hero of the Civil War, General Ulysses S. Grant was a brilliant military strategist whose ruthlessness earned him the nickname "Unconditional Surrender." His victory at Vicksburg, which irrevocably changed the course of the war, won him the admiration of the North and the undying respect of Abraham Lincoln. Grant was a leader for whom thousands of Northern soldiers were willing to fight and die, and for whom thousands did. Perhaps most memorably, he was the general who took Lee's surrender at Appomattox, and the author of its generous terms for peace. The story of Grant's record in the White House is less triumphant. For two terms, as his presidency was rocked by scandal and economic depression, Grant struggled to define the meaning of the war he had fought so hard to win, and the Union he had fought to preserve. While not overlooking Grant's many failings, this film reappraises Grant's career, from his pre-Civil War days as a failed soldier haunted by rumors of drunkenness, to his last hours, when he raced to finish his war memoirs as he was dying of cancer. It argues that the 18th president was an honorable man, who tried to keep promises made to African Americans and who managed to keep the country together in the face of deep divisions

For decades, the Rockefeller name was despised in America--associated with John D. Rockefeller Sr.'s feared monopoly, Standard Oil. By the end of his life, Rockefeller had given away half his fortune--but even his vast philanthropy could not erase the memory of his predatory business practices. His only son, John D. Rockefeller Jr., would dedicate his life to recasting the family image. In the quest for redemption and respectability, Junior would give away hundreds of millions of dollars, and would insist that his six children behave impeccably. Their contributions transformed America. When he died at age 86, Junior left his six children and 22 grandchildren an invaluable inheritance: a name which stood not for corporate greed, but for "the well-being of mankind." With unprecedented access to the family and its archives, this film explores the paradoxical lives of this fabled American dynasty using revealing home movies, archival footage and photographs, and interviews with eight Rockefellers, their colleagues and friends, it paints a vivid portrait of four generations of the family
