The Troopers. An Informal History of the Plains Cavalry 1865-1890.
by [U.S. Cavalry] Whitman, S.E.

Publisher Information:
Hastings House Publishers, New York: 1962.

A Fine copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with a small chip to the bottom edge of the front panel. The cavalry writes about in this book existed from 1865 to 1890 and was informally known as the Plains Cavalry. Formed at the end of the Civil War in 1865, the Plains Cavalry was charged with protecting American settlers, railroaders, wagon trains, businesses, gold seekers and others from Indian attacks. The Plains Cavalry was meant to operate primarily on the western frontiers of the expanding nation. At that time almost anything west of the Mississippi River was considered the frontier. Most Americans living east of the Mississippi had no idea of the danger, deprivation or hardship encountered by those who lived on the other side of the river. This history is a clear-eyes description of the troopers as they really were.
