Write The First Customer Review

Nathaniel Lyon (1818-1861) was the first Union general to die in the Civil War and became the North's first war hero, famed for saving Missouri for the Union. This biography portrays Lyon not as a hero, but an unbalanced, monomaniacal Unionist zealot, and shows how the faults of men affect history.
