Book one of this series on General Grant's life in the West and the Mississippi Valley Campaigns is twenty-one chapters originally published in The Midland Monthly from October 1896 through August 1897. Prefatory remarks begin the history on this portion of General Grant's life and the first chapter begins by describing the conditions of life in the new west in 1843. The book takes us through the Jefferson Barracks, Grant's courtship of his wife, Julia Dent, Fort Jessup, the advance through Texas, his marriage, and the progression of Grant's career across the west and into Mexico and California during the Mexican War. The book includes illustrations of Grant, his wife, and the people and places Grant encountered throughout this period of his life and career. Other pages of stories from the Midland Monthly appear throughout as this Grant history progresses over multiple issues.
