Synopsis: On July 27, 1861, Major Isaac Lynde abandoned Fort Fillmore, marched his troops to San Augustine Springs and there surrendered without a fight. For over 140 years Lynde has borne the names of coward, traitor, doddering old fool, etc. Could an officer, a West Point graduate, with thirty-four years of honorable service on the frontier, be the person historical accounts describe? Isaac Lynde was never tried for his alleged crimes, or even given a hearing - President Abraham Lincoln and Congress ended Lynde's career without allowing him to speak. Was Isaac Lynde a traitor, or the perfect scapegoat for the battering the Federal armies were taking in the early days of the Civil War?
About the Author: Richard Wadsworth was born in Canton, Ohio. He received his B.S. in mathematics and physics from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1966. He worked as a computer programmer, analyst, and military war-game specialist for the United States Army for thirty-two years. Mr. Wadsworth retired and began to study United States military history in the nineteenth century - in effect shifting emphasis from the study of the most modern weapons systems available to a more primitive time when the musket, wagon, and horse were supreme. His area of concentration has been southern New Mexico from the end of the Mexican War to the beginning of the American Civil War, with emphasis on Fort Millard Fillmore, the first American military post in the of the southern Apache tribes.
