Philip Henry Sheridan (1831-1888)

Philip Sheridan was a general during the Civil War whose flair for leadership and his ready fighting ability made him the most outstanding Union cavalry commander. He vigorously pursued Robert E. Lee in April 1865, cutting off the Confederate retreat and forcing his surrender at Appomattox. He was named general in chief of the U.S. Army in 1883. In this photograph during the last years of Sheridan's life, he is wearing his full-dress lieutenant general's uniform complete with medals.
