After the war, Sheridan ruthlessly suppressed the raiding Plains Indians much as he had the Confederates, by killing warriors and burning villages, but he also defended reservation Indians from corrupt agents and contractors. Sheridan, an enthusiastic hunter and conservationist, later ordered the US cavalry to occupy and operate Yellowstone National Park to safeguard it from commercial exploitation.

This is a superb book especially post-Civil War activities of Sheridan. He was part of an unbeatable trio which included Sherman and Grant. Probably best book about Sheridan written.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Wasnt it "Stonwall" Jackson that was Lees 'Terrible Swift Sword"??? Why is this book rebranding Generals to sell it self. Title alone aludes to revisionism. Not read it yet, but will update on completion.
