Tartar: An Incredible War Horse

Just read this amazing story about Tartar, a U.S. Army horse that served in the Army expedition against the Mormons in Utah, and later in the Civil War. He was repeatedly injured, given up for dead several times, including on the plains of Wyoming one freezing winter. But always, he found his way back to the Army and to Sgt. James Stewart.
