Captain (later General) Charles King (1844-1933) is well remembered among Indian war historians as the soldier-writer who opened the door upon frontier military life. In dozens of novels and several highly regarded histories published between 1880 and 1914, King created vital images of America's fontier regulars, portraits with words of the Old Army, its great western campaigns, Indian battles, and the social intrigue of garrison life. Laramie: or, The Queen of Bedlam was one of King's first books, and it remains among his most successful. Published in 1889 and reprinted at least eight times.
