Book Description The Nickerson Family Foundation, Chatham MA., 2001. Hard cover. 184 p. Includes illustrations. Navy blue cloth over boards; gold spine and cover titles, cover with gold border and saber illustration. 15 B&W photos. Biography: Having distinguished himself in leadership during the Civil War, his Army career became tarnished during the "Indian Wars". His poor judgment at "Rosebud" is thought by some historians to have sealed the fate of those who rode with Gen. Custer to Little Big Horn. Further, he had an affair with his wife's dressmaker, bringing scandal to himself. Having pandered to past politicians to enchance his career, his enemies pounced, raised questions about his imbedded Jewish heritage, and forced him in retirement to live in disgrace. When the histories were written, his voice had been silenced. The author, in his introduction, makes these points and notes that history is often made by common people in uncommon circumstances. Fine. No dust jacket. Slight corner compression, no wear. Clean, as new. First edition. First copyrighted by author unpublished 1993. 1 0.0. Seller Inventory # Alibris.97770003019
