Publisher Description

Perry's victory on Lake Erie was the turning-point of the Western campaign, and General Harrison's victory over the British and Indians at the river Thames in Canada ended the war in the West, and restored peace and tranquillity to the exposed settlers of Ohio. My father at once resumed his practice at the bar, and was soon recognized as an able and successful lawyer. When, in 1816, my brother James was born, he insisted on engrafting the Indian name "Tecumseh" on the usual family list. My mother had already named her first son after her own brother Charles; and insisted on the second son taking the name of her other brother James, and when I came along, on the 8th of February, 1820, mother having no more brothers, my father succeeded in his original purpose, and named me William Tecumseh.

Full of surprises

I had only known of Sherman as the commander of 'Sherman's march to the sea' and was surprised to learn of his early life as a San Francisco banker and superintendent of the school that became Louisiana University. Also interesting to learn of his early military and business associations with men who became general officers in the Union and Confederate armies.
