Dear Sir: I have only learned recently about your remarkable life in the Civil War commanding with Grant and Sherman. And the Kennedy grave sites are located on Sheridan Drive! Reading about you, I suspected you were the one who that historic street was named for. Thank you so much for your service nd a happy 4th of July in heaven. Dear God, take care of this great man. Amen. "MINE EYES HAVE SEEN THE GLORY OF THE COMING OF THE LORD..."

Mr. General Sir: I have known for decades about Sheridan Drive in Arlington National Cemetery--it's where the Kennedy Gravesites are located. However, along with my recent study of the Civil War(Lincoln, Grant, Sherman) I have finally found out about you. When I heard about your service in the Western Theatre and your move to assist Grant against Lee I suspected that it was you that this important area in this hallowed ground of Arlington was named after you. I am a history buff. Words cannot express my sincere gratitude for everything you have done for the Union. Along, with many others(Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, MANY SALUTES ALL AROUND!! Happy Easter too!

Many individuals may not know, sir, that you were instrumental in helping protect Yellowstone National Park. In 1882, the Department of the Interior granted rights to the Yellowstone Park Improvement Company to develop 4,000 acres in the park. Their plan was to build a railroad into the park and sell the land to developers. Sheridan personally organized opposition to the plan and lobbied Congress for protection of the park; including expansion, military control, reducing the development to 10 acres and prohibiting leases near park attractions. In addition, he arranged an expedition to the park for President Chester A. Arthur and other influential men. His lobbying soon paid off. A rider was added to the Sundry Civil Bill of 1883, giving Sheridan and his supporters almost everything for which they had asked. In 1886, after a string of ineffectual and sometimes criminal superintendents, Sheridan ordered the 1st U.S. Cavalry into the park. The military operated the park until the National Park Service took it over in 1916. Thank you for your dedication to protecting both the Park and its wildlife.

General Sheridan, you were an outstanding Cavalry general and leader during the War. However, afterwards your tactics and strategies with the Native Americans is most disagreeable, but this is not the place to discuss such matters. Rest in Peace.

There is no denying your exemplary service record in the great Civil War, and it deserves high praise and respect, but I take issue with your attitudes and wanton disregard for the health, welfare, and culture of the great Indian Nations that once roamed free in America.Rest in Peace General.

General Sheridan, you were not a tall man. Nor were you a brilliant General. But you were a giant in terms of your personal bravery in combat. At the start of the Civil War, you were a First Lieutenant with nearly eight years of service. By November 1864, you vacated your commission as a Major General of Volunteers when you were appointed a MAJOR GENERAL IN THE REGULAR ARMY, in recognition of your victories in the Shenandoah valley. Quite a feat for a 33 year old officer. And when Sam Grant became President in 1869, he promoted you to Lieutenant General. Not bad for a man of 38. Your bravery as a infantry commander in the West and Cavalry commander in the East is commendable. I do fault you for relieving General Warren of his Corps Command following Five Forks. You were wrong to do so, but no one is without fault. You were a brave Soldier,"Little Phil"
