In 1898, two months after the USS Maine exploded in Havana Harbor, President McKinley recruited a volunteer force to help drive the Spanish out of Cuba. Led by Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders, the American charge up San Juan Hill is a legendary episode in our history, though few remember what happened there. In this fine, deckle-edged edition, the author of To Hell on a Fast Horse gives us both a detailed account of the Rough Riders and a ripping yarn full of camaraderie and courage. Mark Lee Gardner uncovers much new material in the story of these cowboys and Ivy Leaguers—including their association with the Buffalo Soldiers, the African American regiment with whom they fought side by side.
