    One thought on “Phil Sheridan and His Army”

    1. Best biography of Little Phil to its time -- there have been a couple since that I haven't read yet but want to. The author, Paul Andrew Hutton, was a frequent contributor to shows on The History Channel back when they had shows that were historically interesting, did a commentary track on the DVD of Silverado -- and he was a prof of mine at UNM.
