Book - 2012
Rate this:
In the mid-nineteenth century, the U.S. Army would employ a weapon that had never before been seen on its native soil. From the Middle East came a cavalry mount that would fare better than both mules and horses in the American Southwest. Against the Mojave in the Arizona Territory, against the Mormons in Utah Territory, and during the early stages of the Civil War, the camel would become part of military history, and a nearly forgotten chapter of Americana.
