This is a conversation between Dr. John Marszalek and Dr. Craig Symonds regarding the new Annotated Edition of Ulysses S. Grant’s memoirs Dr. Marszalek edited. As always, it’s pretty good. They had this discussion in Gettysburg, PA as part of the 2018 Lincoln Forum Symposium.
According to the video’s description, “John Marszalek, editor of an annotated edition of Ulysses S. Grant’s memoirs, discussed Grant’s process for writing, his relationship with Abraham Lincoln and why he focused on the Civil War and excluded his presidency. This program is from the annual Lincoln Forum symposium.”
