This book is a facsimile reprint and may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages. In Forty-Six Years in the Army, John M. Schofield, Union Army general and post-Civil War commander of the U.S. Army, provides provocative views of General William T.

Ferraro notes in his foreword, Schofield offers valuable insight not only into Sherman's campaign and Civil War battles but also into such postwar concerns as Reconstruction, diplomacy, Indian affairs, the sensational case at West Point involving black cadet Johnson C. Whittaker, the Fitz-John Porter court martial, and labor more
