Part of the magic of Fort Huachuca is in people like Cornelius Cole Smith, Jr. Corney to his many friends. Descendent of Arizona pioneers, son of a cavalryman and Medal of Honor winner, Corney absorbed the lore and fables of Southwestern and military history by living among generations who helped make it. Born at Fort Huachuca when the colorful U.S. Cavalry still patrolled the International Border and later returning when his father was assigned as Post Commander, Corney could have written an absorbing narrative even without the meticulous scholarly research that this volume displays.
