President Grant by Henry Adams

This is a reading of chapter 17 of “The Education of Henry Adams” It sets the political scene for the period of the Grant Administration and gives you a look at a Congress that didn’t work then just as it doesn’t work now. I will admit that Adams is an acquired taste. His conceit of life circumstances providing his education wears a bit. But give your ears the benefit of the doubt and stay with it. There are a couple of tasty zingers to be found.
