Subsequent to the Civil War, Sheridan was active in the 1868 war with the Comanche and Cheyenne, where he won infamy with his statement that "the only good Indians I ever saw were dead".In 1888 he published his Personal Memoirs of P. Sheridan, one of the best first-hand accounts of the Civil War and the Indian wars which followed.
