    Then you should get Gary Ecelbarger's bio of Logan, Black Jack Logan: An Extraordinary Life In Peace And War. Logan's about face on racial issues is stunning. I don't know if I've ever read about one man doing a complete turnaround on an issue the way Logan did.

    The Logan of the 1870s was a far different man than the one of the 1850s.
