The Fighting McCooks

A fantastic story of courage and honor and love!

During the Civil War, the legendary Fighting McCooks were well known to most Americans. But time and the tempestuous twentieth century swept Ohio’s famous fighting family into a twilight of obscurity. Now the true story of this remarkable Scotch-Irish clan is finally seeing the light of day. And what a story it is!

Seventeen McCooks fought for the North during the Civil War. They fought in every major battle in the western theatre. Sometimes four or five McCooks fought together in battle to save the Union.

Among them there were three major generals, three brigadier generals, one naval lieutenant, four surgeons, two colonels, one major, one lieutenant, one private, and one chaplain. Four gave their lives to save the Union.
