Winfield Scott Hancock: A Soldier's Life
David M. Jordan
This compelling biography presents the colorful life of "Hancock the Superb," one of the most important commanders in the American Civil War. A major figure at battles such as Gettysburg and the Wilderness, Hancock also served in the Plains Indians wars, was a controversial Reconstructionist commander of New Orleans, and just missed gaining the Presidency in 1880. Hancock's life is a unique reflection of America's history for much of the nineteenth century. David M. Jordan recounts his tale with sympathy and verve, and brings Hancock superbly to life for our times.
