Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Stonewall Jackson, Jeb Stuart, William Sherman, George McClellan, George Armstrong Custer--these and many other great generals who fought on both sides of the Civil War had one thing in common; they were all graduates of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point. This is the fascinating story of friendships formed during cadet life that somehow endured through the bitter conflict that divided the nation. Through failure and triumph, West Point Blue and Gray reveals the skill, daring, and character displayed by the West Point graduates as they waged war against each other. The book continues beyond the last shot fired, and reveals their efforts in rebuilding the country, showing that they were in the vanguard working on reconciliation, and demonstrating that special bond they shared.
