The Colored Cadet at West Point

Synopsis

Henry Ossian Flipper was one of the 19th-century West's most remarkable individuals and the first African American graduate of West Point. Although Flipper's record of accomplishment was significant, he was court-martialed and dismissed from the service in 1882. This is Flipper's own account of his career, along with a biographical essay by Quintard Taylor Jr.
