Alexander lived and enjoyed being a Georgia country boy. However, he soon realized that he was born into a southern aristocratic family. Realizing this, he entered West Point in June 1853 and graduated third in his class of 1857. He was a bright young officer eager to please and demonstrate his brilliant array of talents.

Travis followed in Alexander’s footsteps throughout his life and documented the research with images, photographs, illustrations, maps, and original never before published historical papers in order that the reader will be able to visually identify with this great American.
