    It's actually jam packed with things like that! He was great friends with Samuel Clemens who convinced Grant to write his memoirs.

    He was a good writer. Clemens also published them because another publisher gave him a bad deal but Grant had poor business sense. So he showed the contract to Clemens who laughed and said, "they're ripping you off." He published Grant's memoirs for a fair price. Apparently he was a good writer because he was able to write complex and easily understood orders from the field for his commanders to follow.

    Maybe you'll win a beer for that!
