most intimate acquaintance of the skills, character, the romance and the legend of george armstrong custer, and they had to almost completely different views of the man's worth, the valley of the man. there is a great quote some of you might of the new yesterday when it entered his henry adamson's quote from this book, from "custer's trials." i quoted charles francis adams junior who is henry adams great-great-grandfather and a favorite character of t.j. stiles as it turns out and about another book, finishing a book today that epitomizes i think what t.j. stiles can do. adams said about the war, the civil war, as a cavalry officer, he said the truth would knock the romance out of you. in essence that's what t.j. stiles can do with a character like commodore vanderbilt, jesse james or george armstrong custer. and yet at the same time the brutal cynicism that is the civil war, the war on borders, the will against the indians also still has its romance. t. j. stiles is able to do that as well. to leave the romance in the brutality. he's a midwesterner, went to carleton college in colu
