Description
A U.S. Army soldier from the outset of the Civil War, Anson Mills (1834–1924) saw frontier service in Arizona and Kansas against the Apache and the Cheyenne, and in Montana during the Great Sioux War, retiring finally as a brigadier general after 36 years. But Mills is best remembered as an early resident of El Paso—which he both named and surveyed—and as a member of the International Border Commission, as well as for erecting the landmark Mills Building in El Paso and inventing a new cartridge belt for the army, which made him a wealthy man. His illustrated 1918 autobiography is fascinating stuff, full of insights concerning the U.S. Army in particular and 19th-century American values in general.
