I was greatly dismayed to hear today of the death of U.S. Grant expert Professor John Y. Simon. Although I’ve lived within an hour and a half of the University of Southern Illinois in Carbondale almost my entire life, I never had the pleasure of meeting a man who by all accounts was as gregarious as he was knowledgeable. Rest in peace Professor Simon. You will be missed, not only by the Civil War community.
