Summary
"For more than 140 years most have accepted the claim by Confederate Colonel John S. Mosby that George Armstrong Custer bears all of the guilt associated with the executions of six of Mosby's Rangers at Front Royal, Virginia on September 23, 1864. This book challenges that through a look at events and persons involved"--Provided by publisher.
