  • Union General during US Civil War
  • Sheridan County can be found in five U.S. states: Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wyoming
  • Mentioned in Col. Stephen Clark's Civil War letters : " I have also been recommended by Gen. Smith to the president for promotion to Brevet Colonel for the manner in which the regiment fought, and the captures made by it during the campaign. The recommendation was approved by General Crook (George Crook) and Sheridan, and will probably go through. I write you this so that you may know that the 13th was not idle while others fought."
