Adam Badeau (1831-1895), US Army staff officer who served both generals Sherman and Grant. He became Grant's military secretary in 1864, and they became close friends. Badeau was a prolific writer, and amongst his works is the three volume Military History of Ulysses S. Grant. He also assisted Grant with Grant's Personal Memoirs. Badeau served as a diplomat in Europe during and after Grant's presidency.

Grant in Peace is a memoir of his political career, written by one who had observed and studied him closely, and at the time was counted as a friend.
