Under Fire with the Tenth U.S. Cavalry

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Following the Civil War, legislation was passed in 1866 authorizing the enlistment of Black regiments, which led to the formation of the Tenth Cavalry and other military units. The Tenth Cavalry was to have a long and distinguished history of military service, playing a major role in the Indian campaigns of the American West and in the Spanish-American War. When first published in 1899, 'Under Fire with the Tenth US Cavalry' received little attention but has since emerged as a minor classic. This edition, with more than 100 illustrations and a new introduction by historian Richard Ellis, remains a valuable source of information for those interested in Black and US military history.

The book is in very good condition. Crease to front corner and booksellers label to inside of front cover but otherwise pages are very clean and unmarked with no inscriptions. Binding tight.
