.) The most vivid story of the cavalry battles yet told.
III.* personal history of Ulysses S. Grant.
By Albert D. Richardson.
（Hartford, Conn., 1868: American Publishing Company.) Full of anecdote and interest.
On the whole, better than either its contemporaries or its followers.
Military history of Ulysses S. Grant.
By Adam Badeau.
(New York, 1868-81: D. Appleton & Co.) A pompous third-rate production, and untrustworthy.
V. The Virginia campaign of ‘64 and ‘65.
By Andrew A. Humphreys.
(New York, 1883: Charles Scribner's Sons.) The admirable temper and ability of this book place it far above any military narrative thus far written in this country.
VI. * personal Memoirs of U. S Grant.
(New York, 1885-86: Charles L. Webster & Co.; Century Company, 1895.) This great book has been already spoken of in the text.
With it should be read the Memoirs of Sherman and Sheridan.
They make a trilogy that will outlast any criticism.
Grant in peace.
