Sheridan graduated from West Point in 1853. He then spent nine years in the West before returning East during the Civil War. In 1862, he was appointed colonel of the 2nd Michigan Cavalry and fought in Mississippi. Promoted to brigadier general, he then commanded the 11th division of the army of the Ohio and later fought at the Battle of Stones Rivers and Chickamauga, then as a major general of volunteers. His victory at Missionary Ridge in 1863 was impressive and he was appointed head of the cavalry of the Army of the Potomac in 1864. He took part in the Battle of the Wilderness in May, 1864 and on August 4, was given command of the Army of the Shenandoah. He succeeded in taking Winchester and was made a regular major general. In March, 1865, Sheridan forced Lee to retire west of his lines, and ultimately cut off his lines of retreat at Appomatox. After the war he served in Texas and Louisiana and, from 1868-69, led a successful Indian campaign and was promoted to lieutenant general. In 1883 he was appointed general in chief of the army and in 1888 was commissioned a full general. His Memoirs were written in the final months of his life.
