The life of Ulysses S. Grant is coming to life in a bold new way.
This fall, History Canada will premiere its three-night miniseries event “Grant”, about the American Civil War general and eventual U.S. president.
The series will feature a combination of expert commentary, archival images and stunning dramatic sequences telling the life story of the man who won the Civil War.
“Ulysses S. Grant is one of our most brilliant, yet misunderstood presidents and History is committed to telling the compelling stories, like his, of those who have shaped our great nation,” said Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President and General Manager for History. “This is an important part of American history that deserves to be told and we look forward to delivering our latest premium core history documentary series to our audience.”
“Grant” is produced by biographer Ron Chernow and executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, and will feature interviews with experts including former CIA director David Petraeus and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates.
