Jerome Preisler - Civil War Commando, The Story of William B Cushing - Jerome Preisler Returns to the Break It Down Show with his book Civil War Commando. Get this, William B Cushing was expelled from the Naval Academy on the eve of his graduation for being a crap student and a cut up. Then fate started twisting in the civil war winds.
Pete says, "One of the best books I've read in 2022 is Civl War Commando" by Jerome Preisler https://amzn.to/3Kup4e6
He managed to get a few more seconds chances due to the Civil War and did he ever shine. The Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles said, "His heroism, good luck and coolness under fire were legendary" When you look up Cushing on the web, there will be some things that tell part of the story...but Jerome's book is incredible.
