WREG-TV Memphis Live at 9 Interview

January 24, 2008

Bill returned to Memphis WREG-TV to be interviewed on “Live at 9” by Alex Coleman and April Thompson for his book Ulysses S. Grant, 1861-1864. After discussing how Grant personal views on slavery changed as the war progressed (Grant had not originally been an abolitionist), Mr. Coleman asked Bill: “Did that part of the man Ulysses S. Grant, did that even surprise you?” Bill responded “Yes, that is not what you’re typically taught in school, I don’t think.”
