The Presidency of Ulysses S. Grant
By Charles W. Calhoun

After his success as the commanding general of the Union armies, Ulysses S. Grant was an embattled president whose terms from 1869 to 1877 entailed significant and complex questions that marked the nation’s recovery from that war.  This book examines Grant’s administration in depth, approaching Grant’s presidency not as a sequel to his military career but instead as the polestar of American public life during a crucial decade in the nation's political development.

Final discussion on August 13, 10 am.  Author Charles Calhoun will participate for an hour.  We will then select our next book.  New participants are welcome.         See note below for how to join.

Join the Study Forum

All members of the Lincoln Group are welcome to participate in this study and discussion group.  The Study Forum meets once a month on a Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon.  Most often, we learn from a recently published book about Lincoln or his era.  Members submit questions to a facilitator who organizes the meeting format for maximum engagement. 


You are welcome to join at any time regardless of your personal knowledge level.  We are all learning together to better appreciate the leadership and legacy of Abraham Lincoln.  We ask that you do the reading and participate in the conversation.  While we have always met in person at the Ford's Theatre Learning Center, we are currently Zoomers, meeting from the comfort of our homes. 

Sign up or ask questions using the contact comment box at the bottom of this page.  You are also welcome to try us out if you are considering membership.
