Rosencrans, Bobbie Robertson.  Softcover, 580 pages. B&W illustrations.

The Sixth Michigan Cavalry fought in nearly all the important battles of the eastern front.  They played a critical role at Gettysburg, fought 27 total battles, and received the surrender flag at Appomattox Court House.  They were assigned to lay waste to the Shenandoah Valley to prevent the Confederates from obtaining food from the farms there. Under the command of General George Armstrong Custer, they burned or took almost all the Valley’s resources…and when they returned to Michigan they said little about what they’d done there. After the war some Company F men were sent west on horseback, across the vast and nearly trackless plains, to build a fort in Wyoming Territory. Here they encountered Native Americans resistant to the Federal intrusions. However, their trip west was an adventure that today’s Americans can only imagine.

The author's extensive research on this Civil War Cavalry company details their experience: fighting heroically at Gettysburg, 27 other battles, receiving the surrender flag at Appomattox, and being sent west to build a fort in northern Wyoming territory after the war. Details and examples are drawn from first-hand accounts, primarily pension files. It also explores pre- and post-war conditions, social and medical issues, genealogy, and issues that affect society today.
