About The Book
In December of 1835, eight officers and one hundred men of the U.S. Army under the command of Brevet Major Francis Langhorne Dade set out from Fort Brooke at Tampa Bay, Florida, to march north a hundred miles to reinforce Fort King (present-day Ocala). On the sixth day, halfway to their destination, they were attacked by Seminole Indians. By four o’clock in the afternoon, only three wounded soldiers survived what came to be known as Dade’s Massacre. Only two of those men managed to struggle fifty miles back to Fort Brooke. One of them, wounded in shoulder and hip, a bullet in one lung, was Pvt. Ransom Clark. This is the story of his incredible journey.
Nobody’s Hero is a true adventure of an American soldier who refused to die, in spite of terrible wounds that would have stopped a lesser man. Frank Laumer has used historical documents, including Clark’s own brief account, and, as Laumer explains, “taken the bones of fact and put upon them the flesh of fiction.” It is the story of great duplicity, not on the part of Seminole Indians, but of the politicians and officers who sent the men of Dade’s command to their death. Dade’s Battle was the pretext needed to begin what was to be the longest and most expensive Indian war in American history.
