GENERAL ULYSSES S GRANT SIGNED Letter 1862 Civil War Battle Plans

$9,700.00

“In battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.”
-Ulysses S. Grant

He’s been called the greatest General of his time. A leader of men. Hiram Ulysses Grant was born on April 27, 1822, in Point Pleasant, Ohio. Grant was Shy and reserved in his youth like his mother. When Grant was 17, his father arranged for him to enter the United States Military Academy at West Point. A clerical error had listed him as Ulysses S. Grant. Not wanting to be rejected by the school, he changed his name on the spot.

In 1854, Grant resigned from the Army but in 1861, Confederate troops attacked Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina. This act of rebellion sparked Grant's patriotism and put him in the front lines of the U.S. Civil War.

Grant was appointed to command an unruly 21st Illinois volunteer regiment. Grant and his volunteers took the small town of Paducah, Kentucky, at the mouth of the Tennessee River. In February 1862, in a joint operation with the U.S. Navy, Grant's ground forces applied pressure on Fort Henry and Fort Donelson, taking them both. These battles are credited as the earliest significant Union victories of the War and Grant was promoted to Major General.

Grant continued to win Battles including the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, the Battle at Vicksburg in 1863.

Grant adamantly believed that taking down the Confederate armies was most important and set out to track down and destroy General Robert E. Lee's Army. Grant hunted for Lee in the forests of Virginia, all the while inflicting unsustainable casualties on Lee's army.
On April 9, 1865, Lee surrendered his army to Grant, marking the end of the Civil War.

This extraordinary war time letter addressed to Major General James McPherson, Containing important military content and battle plans reads, “Start your command for the Tallahatchie so soon as all property from the Depot is removed and take position in the North banks of the stream. The bridges should be held and for this purpose one brigade should be left at Abbeville, besides most of the Cavalry.”
Hand written and signed in Grant’s own hand, “Ulysses S. Grant.”

We’ve included this impressive photo of Grant in uniform and centered below it the perfect quote from Grant. One that embodied his warrior mindset and one that speaks to and high achiever’s tenacity.

“In battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.”
-Ulysses S. Grant
