Dr. Craig Von BuseckOur first guest is Dr. Craig Von Buseck, a published author. Today he will discuss his latest book “Victor! The Final Battle of Ulysses S. Grant.”  Dr. Von Buseck is the Digital Content Manager for the Parenting section for Focusonthefamily.com. He is a contributing writer for CBN.com, MTL Magazine, thewriteconversation.blogspot.com, and Charisma Magazine. He holds a Doctor of Ministry and an MA in Religious Journalism from Regent University.

“Victor! The Final Battle of Ulysses S. Grant” sheds light onto the dark days of the American Civil War when one leader Ulysses S. Grant emerged to guide the nation to victory and then to the beginnings of reconciliation. As Lieutenant General, he defeated the rebellion. As Chief of the Army, he provided a stabilizing presence during the Andrew Johnson impeachment. As a Presidential candidate, he spoke for every American with his slogan: “Let Us Have Peace.” But there is one story of Grant’s heroism that is rarely told. Perhaps the most dramatic season in Grant’s life came in his final two years. After leaving the White House, he lost all his money in a massive Ponzi scheme. Then only a few months later, he received the devastating news that he was dying of throat cancer. Dr. Craig von Buseck uncovers this historical legend’s inspiring and intimate side while providing an in-depth look at the last two years of Grant’s life. Often glossed over in other biographies, the tale told in Victor! focuses on these events. It reveals the driving force behind the winning strategy in his final battle— the campaign to restore his family’s fortune, to ensure his wife is cared for after his death, and to write his memoirs to remind the world that the Civil War was about slavery and a new birth of freedom.
