Hiram Ulysses Grant, who is commonly known as Ulysses S. Grant, wrote his memoirs about his time in army in California during the Mexican American War, as a General During the U.S. Civil War and as a U.S. President. Hiram Ulysses Grant finished his personal memoirs on July 14, 1885; twenty years after the American Civil War ended.

Grant was very ill, during the course of his writing, and he passed away a week after he completed his memoir. Therefore, Grant did not live in time to see his work published.
