This story of a rebel officer describes how a distinguished general served in all the major campaigns of the Civil War and later on the western frontier.

This biography about Brigadier General John Gibbon covers his lifetime from 1827 to 1896. It focuses, of course, on his military career spanning the years from the end of the Mexican War, through the Civil War, and through efforts to keep the peace with the Seminole in Florida and the Sioux, Cheyenne, and Nez Perce on the western frontier, and thereafter. The biography describes life in America in some detail throughout most of the nineteenth century and defines what military training and service required at West Point and in peace and wartime. Extensive note materials and bibliographical references enrich this interesting study.
