    Ulysses S. Grant's Memoirs The Mexican War. The Personal Memoirs of U. S. Grant (In Two Volumes, 1, pages, published by J. J. Little and Company, New York, ) include several chapters recounting his experiences during the Mexican War. This section of our web site presents Grant's own words written years ago.   The cause of the great War of the Rebellion against the United Status will have to be attributed to slavery. For some years before the war began it was a trite saying among some politicians that "A state half slave and half free cannot exist.".   Major-General George H. Thomas, who had been in Buell's army, was transferred with his division to the Army of the Tennessee and given command of the right wing, composed of all of that army except McClernand's and Lew. Wallace's divisions. McClernand was assigned to the command of the reserve, composed of his own and Lew. Wallace's divisions.
