General Sherman's Son
Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1959 - 276 pages

Only 9 in 1856 when his father was honored at the White House as an American hero, Thomas Ewing Sherman went on to graduate from Yale, study law, and enter the Jesuit novitiate. He then became a widely popular speaker in the latter half of the century. Whenever he appeared (and in one 200 day period, he gave 300 talks), father Sherman drew record crowds who came to see and hear the son of Old Tecumseh. He was one of the earliest American opponents of communism, as well as an early supporter of racially mixed marriages.
