Late in life John Benton Hart, with the encouragement of his son Harry, recorded his reminiscences of Civil War service and later experiences in the West. Hart served in the 11th Kansas Infantry (later converted into the 11th Kansas Cavalry) and after the war spent several years in Montana. Son Harry embellished his father’s recollections, and some of the episodes recorded, especially some long conversations, beggar belief. Yet especially in the post-Civil War sections, the narrative is unfailingly interesting and in places quite revealing.
