The Great Commanders

Ulysses S Grant
Season 1  |  Episode 5  |  The History Channel  |  October 10, 2017

At the beginning of the Civil War, Ulysses S Grant worked in a store. Within four years he was commanding the Union armies and within eight, he was president of the US. The Battle of the Wilderness was an indecisive, bloody tangle in a dense forest. Though it ended in a tactical stalemate, it was a vital strategic victory - one which led to the defeat of the Confederacy.
