Overview


This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 One of the most highly decorated officers in military history, Sheridan stands out for his exploits in the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War. He is known for his famous ride during the Battle of Cedar Creek and for his implementation of a hard war that scarred the landscape in what some Virginia residents aptly termed "The Burning." Historians typically group Sheridan among the top three generals on the Union side in the Civil War, next to Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman. Together the men formed the team that helped defeat the Confederacy and preserve the Union.

Sheridan claims birth in Albany, New York, on March 6, 1831. His first step toward fame came when he entered the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. In 1883 he was named general in chief of the army, a position he retained until just before he succumbed to heart disease on August 5, 1888, in Norquitt, Massachusetts.
