Synopsis

"My Army Life and the Fort Phil Kearney Massacre" is a fascinating work that tells the story of frontier life, not from the perspective of a soldier or frontiersman, but instead from the perspective of a woman who saw and experienced some of the most brutal events of the American West. "Carringtons book is a riveting portrait of life at a frontier post in dangerous territory, as well as a snapshot of Victorian mores and the lingering influence of the Civil War. . . . It is a necessary addition to other material on Fort Phil Kearny, the Fetterman Massacre, and the Bozeman Trail." — Roundup Magazine After the loss of her first husband Frances went on to marry Colonel Henry B. Carrington. She wrote My Army Life and the Fort Phil Kearney Massacre forty years after the fort was abandoned.
