He was bold in battle but insisted he was never reckless. He was loved by his men and was lauded by the public for the rest of his life after the American Civil War.
His reputation as a soldier was worldwide and when he toured Europe later in life, he was hailed as a hero. He intended to write his memoirs and was working on them when he died in 1888. Two men who knew him (one of whom served with him) took up the task and delivered this volume to an admiring audience.
The two men who completed this work were former cavalrymen and famous journalists in their day.
Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever.
For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
