Overview
-

• New information not previously published in map form, including Grant's early life and his pre-Civil War career. Multi-color maps differentiate commands—essential to understanding command relationships in complex battles such as Shiloh. 46 lavish color maps, 4 orders-of-battle, and 75 photos, engravings, and paintings.

Grant Rising is a remarkable reference book in colour maps and text of Ulysses S. Grant's famous battles in 1862—including Donelson and Shiloh—and also his early life, including his frontier and Mexican War service—as well as his minor engagements in the Western Theater of the American Civil War. Grant Rising features techniques that portray Civil War battles in a new way, such as shaded relief topography, giving the maps a three-dimensional appearance. Plus the use of different color tints to represent command relationships makes it easier to determine which brigades reported to which divisions and corps at a glance. Using slightly different shades of blue and red also allow for easy differentiation of many units on a single map, making the action easier to understand. Grant Rising is a truly new type of map reference book as well as an inspired history of Grant's early life and career through 1862.
