The two-volume set was published by Mark Twain shortly after Grant's death. Twain created a unique marketing system designed to reach millions of veterans with a patriotic appeal just as Grant's death was being mourned.
Ten thousand agents canvassed the North, following a script that Twain had devised; many were veterans who dressed in their old uniforms. Each copy contained what looked like a handwritten note from Grant himself. Grant has been highly regarded by the general public, military historians, and literary critics. Positive attention is often directed toward Grant's prose, which has been praised as shrewd, intelligent, and effective. He portrayed himself in the persona of the honorable Western hero, whose strength lies in his honesty and straightforwardness.He candidly depicts his battles against both the external Confederates and his internal Army foes.
