President Grant, Writing Memoirs


General U. S. Grant, Writing his Memoirs at Mt. McGregor, June 27, 1885.  Grant would die less than one month later on July 23, 1885. Grant, penniless at this point due to unfortunate business failures after his Presidency, is struggling to write his memoirs in order to have some means of providing for his family.
