Most writers are impressed by three things in the life of Clay Allison: That he had a tooth pulling bout with a dentist; that he rode the streets of Canadian(?), Texas, clothed only in a gun belt; and that he went back to Tennessee(?) to marry his childhood sweetheart. Perhaps none of these incidents are hardly capable of exciting the imagination of the intelligent reader, but they do tend to set up a curiosity about this famous Western character. Eleven years of research and thirty thousand miles of travel are the propos on which the author built this story. It is not surprising that he should come up with a human being who is surprisingly capable of feats more commendable than those other Western legendary characters hit upon by most writers of Western folklore. Exciting tales of gun slingers are not always true tales. Here we find have both combined

This is the story of the young man from Milton, Mass., who made a career of the army. He fought Indians, founded military posts and as an officer recruiting men for the service wanted them all the same height, weight and if possible all farm boys. He was in the Black Hawk War, Mexican War, Civil War. He was a personal friend of Abraham Lincoln, accompanying him to Washington for his inauguration. He rose from the ranks never having attended West Point Military Academy. It is often said that this kept him from being named commander of the Army of the Potomac. He was one of the organizers of the U.S. Cavalry. A number of the officers in the Civil War were trained by him in cavalry tactics at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania. He was cited for bravery in the Mexican War as well as in the Civil War. Fort Sumner, New Mexico is named for him as well as places in Kansas, California and several other states. Sumner had such a love for American that he called for a glass of wine to drink a toast to his county before he died. He passed away after downing the last drop. He was buried with military honors in Syracuse, New York -- Book jacket

The Clovis, New Mexico story by F Stanley( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a Cinderella city. Its ingredients are not rhetorical narrative or moral criticism. It aligns the past as an organic process very much like the trains moving in and out of the long, narrow depot, rather than assembles facts to form a mosaic of incidents portraying its yesterdays in gathering its tomorrows. Here the concern is not the activity of politicians, the doings of county officials, schedules of railroad men, but the social and economic pressures of a moving world that gave it birth, blood, flesh and growth. Like fresh air blowing on skin. Clovis is a by-product of the pioneering spirit that held New Mexico in its grip at the turn of the century when railroads, homestead laws, acts of Federal and Territorial governments brought about changes in the social structured, and gave a shot in the arm to the Eastern Slope changing it materially and forever. The superstructure here is economic rather than ideological. The spiritual was a factor from the beginning because the people making the city were religious. Railroaders, farmers, store keepers, lawyers, doctors, teachers may have been arbitrarily influenced by the challenge of the land and the sky that is New Mexico, but their spiritual sense of values was the yardstick by which they measured all other considerations. Clovis seems to have no past. It seems to be in constant stages of experimentation. It defies tradition in its growth, development and prosperity. It never bowed to patriarchalism in merely re-establishing things as they were "where I came from"; the common cause buried that civilization and culture to the philosophy of "let's all put our shoulders to the wheel." Outwardly it appears as any other city. but the people are different, warm, kind, good. There are a few exceptions but these embellish rather than destroy the image, like highlights and shadows in a painting., Police, city officials, teachers, lawyers, bankers, railroad people, evoke admiration for kindness and efficiency. If Clovis has any enemies they were not of her making. The finger of progress may point to a change in all of this. If Clovis does change then it will have a past -- Book jacket
