This is Lieutenant Henry Lighthorse [Worth]. Henry is one of my favorite characters. He's a mixedblood Cherokee whose Mexican War Veteren grandfather is a prominent slaveowner in Darkesville, VA. Henry attended the VMI, which is kinda sensational for his time. Even though he is a low-ranking officer, he doesn't get the respect he deserves (I'm sure you can imagine).
Anyway, Henry's in the cavalry under Colonel Bernard on duty at Fort Stark (a remote short-straw duty to be certain).
