History is replete with misrepresentations and outright fallacies. According to Eric J. Wittenburg, one of the most enduring falsehoods to emerge from the Civil War relates to the record of Union general Philip H. Sheridan. Wittenburg claims that the diminutive Sheridan rarely displayed tactical ability, occasionally engaged in acts of insubordination, and frequently manipulated facts in an effort to conceal his dubious military service.
