Local Author Appearing at Grant's Cottage with New Book

Local Author Frank Varney Presenting and Signing Copies of New Book –

General Grant and the Rewriting of History

 El Dorado Hills, CA June 16, 2015 – Local Author Frank Varney will be presenting and signing copies of his book, General Grant and the Rewriting of History: How the Destruction of General William S. Rosecrans Influenced Our Understanding of the Civil War.

 

The presentation and book signing is at 1:00 pm on Sunday, July 12th at the Friends of Ulysses S. Grant Cottage (9 Denhelder Drive

Ballston Lake, NY). For more information:

www.GrantCottage.org.

 

In 1885, a former president of the United States published one of the most influential books ever written about the Civil War. An entire generation of Americans had eagerly awaited his memoirs and it has remained so popular that it has never gone out of print. Historians then and now have made extensive use of Grant’s recollections, which have shaped how we understand and evaluate not only the Union army’s triumphs and failures, but many of the war’s key participants. The Memoirs of Ulysses Simpson Grant may be a superbly written book, Frank P. Varney persuasively argues in General Grant and the Rewriting of History, but is so riddled with flaws as to be unreliable.

The Civil War Monitor stated: “Varney successfully demonstrates that Grant’s Memoirs need to be treated with the same careful reading as other Civil War memoirs, that Grant and others did sometimes go out of their way to undercut Rosecrans’ accomplishments, and that historians have at times given Grant's version of events a pass.”

About the Author: Frank Varney earned his Ph.D. at Cornell University. He regularly leads student groups to Civil War battlefields and makes frequent speaking appearances before Civil War Roundtables and historical societies. Professor Varney is currently developing a course to be taught on-site at Gettysburg, and will do the same for a course on Chickamauga. He teaches U.S. and classical history at Dickinson State University of North Dakota, where he is also the director of the Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program. This is his first book.
