Newt Gingrich on his book Grant Comes East
Listen to Newt Gingrich introduce his historical novel Grant Comes East, written with co-author William R. Forstchen. Grant Comes East continues the story of a Confederate victory, examining the great "what if" of American history: Could Lee have won the Battle of Gettysburg? A Confederate victory, however, would not necessarily mean that the Southern cause has gained its final triumph and a lasting peace.Share This
