About this title


Nathaniel Lyon (1818-1861) was the first Union general to die in the Civil War and became the North's first war hero, famed for saving Missouri for the Union. This biography portrays Lyon not as a hero, but an unbalanced, monomaniacal Unionist zealot, and shows how the faults of men affect history.

From the Back Cover:

In Damned Yankee is a complex, often shocking, portrait of one of the most controversial figures of the Civil War and a sobering study of how the faults of men greatly affects history.
