Abstract:

"Sheridan's parents were relatively poor, yet Phil Sheridan, through years of study, hard work, and danger, finally became the Commanding General of the United States Army. Throughout his career, he was always willing to fight -- and also to study. He constantly sought new and better ways of carrying out his duties as an officer. The history of Sheridan's life is another example of what one American boy was able to accomplish, largely through his own efforts"--Foreword.
