Relic Hunting Post #140 - Mucho Minié Balls (Part 1)


UNT Press said...

I’m with UNT Press, and we’ve recently published James Carson's Against the Grain: Colonel Henry M. Lazelle and the U.S. Army (https://untpress.unt.edu/catalog/3666).

Henry Martyn Lazelle (1832-1917) was the only cadet in the history of the U.S. Military Academy to be suspended and sent back a year (for poor grades and bad behavior) and eventually return as Commandant of the Corps of Cadets. After graduating from West Point in 1855, he scouted with Kit Carson, was wounded by Apaches, and spent nearly a year as a “paroled” prisoner-of-war at the outbreak of the Civil War. Exchanged for a Confederate officer, he took command of a Union cavalry regiment, chasing Mosby's Rangers throughout northern Virginia.

JAMES CARSON, who is Henry Lazelle’s great-grandson, has more than thirty years of experience as a military intelligence analyst, manager, and educator. He received his MA in International Studies from George Washington University and is a graduate of the Army Command and Staff College.

Would you be interested in reviewing the book for your blog? Please email me at Bonnie.Stufflebeam@unt.edu if so.

Thanks so much.
