The Soldiers' General is a military biography of Major General Gouverneur Kemble Warren, of New York. Warren is best remembered as the savior of Little Round Top, at Gettysburg, but he was a career soldier and engineer who was an important subordinate in every campaign of the Army of the Potomac. He rose to corps command but was removed at the Battle of Five Forks by Philip Sheridan. Denied justice by Gen. Grant, he fought to have his name cleared. Warren has been misrepresented and unfairly treated by generations of historians accepting Grant and Sheridan's accounts. Here, Warren is presented in light of his record and with previously underused evidence.
