This lively and informative biography of General John Buford-the Union's most important cavalry officer-covers his entire military career, from his West Point days through his quartermaster duties, his field service on the frontier, and the Bleeding Kansas and Mormon campaigns, to his famous Civil War campaigns, including Brandy Station and Gettysburg. Acclaimed Civil War author Edward Longacre has combed family records, West Point cadet files, and the National Archives to produce what can safely be described as a classic of military biography.
