Summary, etc.:
"Lawton served the country nearly uninterrupted from the day he enlisted at age 18--soon after President Lincoln's first call for volunteers to fight in the Civil War, where he earned a Medal of Honor-to his death at age 56, a major general in the Philippine War. In between, he fought in the Indian Wars in Texas, the Northern Plains and the Arizona Territory. It was during this time that he rose to national prominence as the man who captured Geronimo following a grueling, nonstop, four-month pursuit deep into Mexico."--Jacket.
