Author of the book, "Ups & Downs of an Army Officer" about his colorful, heroic and turbulent career in the United States Army, a lot of which is used in this biographical treatise. His book was first published in 1900 and there are no copyrights currently in effect that I could find.

Armes career in the military brought him fame and a degree of infamy. He very possibly knew or served with almost every major historical figure during the Civil War through about 1900 when he wrote his book to include: Buffalo Bill Cody, George Armstrong Custer, Phil Sheridan, Winfield Scott Hancock, George Meade, William Tecumseh Sherman, James Blaine and many, many more.

He was born in Virginia but during the Civil War he chose to fight for the Union. While en route to Washington, D.C., he was captured by Cassius M. Clay....
