Arizonians in the First U.S. Cavalry recorded a dramatic involvement in the Spanish-American War. They were joined by men from New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Indian Territory, and were molded into a regiment of fighting men who came to be known as the Rough Riders. Their contribution to the eventual success of the Spanish-American War is legendary. Their Colonel became President of the United States, and their squadron commander became the governor of Arizona Territory. Fine in dust jacket with a few nicks to the extremities.
