THE reader will find this to be not a mere child's book. It is designed mainly for the boys of America, but not for them exclusively. The boyhood of Lieutenant-General ULYSSES SIDNEY GRANT, of the United States Army, is depicted at length in its pages, for the purpose of showing, by the record of his youthful history, how much the characteristics of the boy are developed in the man.
The boyhood of GEORGE WASHINGTON, under the guidance of his judicious parents, was a key to much of his future career. These pages will prove that it has been the same with Gen. GRANT. The book, however, is not confined to the youth of the Tanner-Boy. It follows him through his manhood, depicts all the leading events of his life, and shows, by the concurrent testimony of history, the gradual steps of progress by which he has become LieutenantGeneral.
