Their lives in many ways were remarkably similar: Both graduated from West Point; both fought in the Mexican War; both moved up the ranks of the U. Military; both were asked by President Abraham Lincoln to command Federal forces; and both were present at Appomattox at the war's close. Following Lincoln's lead, General Grant was particularly generous to Lee in the terms of surrender, offering Confederate soldiers clemency as long as they honored their commitment not to take up arms. Ex-Confederates were surprisingly cordial toward Grant: In one telling post-war incident, Lee admonished and embarrassed a man who began denouncing Grant; the ex-Confederate commander said that he would not permit such remarks about Grant in his presence. Grant and Lee captured the devotion and admiration of the American people in their day, and both continue to fascinate historians and general readers alike with their extraordinary dignity, valor, military genius, and leadership qualities.
Grant's Personal Memoirs and Lee's Recollections and Letters remain not only decisive histories of the Civil War and its military leaders, but also fundamental texts for understanding the character of the United States and her heroes.
