If John M. Schofield's military career involved nothing more than his participation in several key battles, he would still be worthy of full-length biography. Yet Schofield's most memorable accomplishments occurred long after he lead Union troops at the battles of Franklin and Nashville. In the years that followed, he served as secretary of war and stood as the chief proponent of reform and professionalism within the U.S. Army.
