This is a story of the youngest general in the Union Army who fought valiantly at the Battle of Shiloh and was sent to defend Cincinnati from a Confederate attack. In just three days he turned the defenseless, panicked city into a fortress and saved the sixth largest city in the nation from being burned or held for ransom by the South. He formed the first Black Brigade in the Union Army, rescued Washington, D.C., stopped a bloody range war, captured Billy the Kid, fought an Apache war in New Mexico and wrote an American classic, Ben-Hur.

Peter Bronson is back at the J with signed books available for purchase.
