Author Lecture: The Man Who Saved Cincinnati by Peter Bronson

This is a story of the youngest general in the Union Army who fought valiantly
at the Battle of Shiloh and was sent to defend Cincinnati from a Confederate
attack. In just three days he turned the defenseless, panicked city into a
fortress and saved the sixth largest city in the nation from being burned or
held for ransom by the South. He formed the first Black Brigade in the Union
Army, rescued Washington, D.C., stopped a bloody range war, captured Billy the
Kid, fought an Apache war in New Mexico and wrote an American classic, Ben-
Hur.

Peter Bronson is back at the J with signed books available for purchase.
