Grant's Early Battles is a collection of games about Ulysses S. Grant's first experience of command. Grant's earliest battle, Belmont, showcases his aggressive restlessness and tenacity. Fort Donelson was a decisive victory that brought him to the attention of the Union public, while the bloody struggle at Shiloh nearly cost his army and his job.
