"A thorough examination of this famous military action through three genres--Dee Brown's historical account, Grierson's Raid; Harold Sinclair's 1956 novel, The Horse Soldiers; and John Ford's 1959 film, The Horse Soldiers...demonstrates how historical "truths" are often omitted, fragmented, and altered before being assimilated into popular culture and how the events of our past are often molded to fit the contraints of the present"--cover.
