Art Stevens

Archetype: Last Cavalryman

Description:

Art Stevens joined the army at 18 and quickly found that authority didn’t agree with him. After spending a lot of time in the stockade, he was finally transferred to a remote post in New Mexico where troublemakers were assigned to manage remounts for the shrinking Army horse cavalry.

In 1935 word came that the cavalry was being mostly disbanded in favor of tanks and armored cars. The soldiers were ordered to drive the herd to Mexico to be slaughtered. But the soldiers, including Art, refused to follow orders. They drove the horses cross country from New Mexico to the Canadian border, pursued by elements of General MacArthur’s division.

The soldiers finally crossed the border under the eye of the RCMP, who kept the Army from firing their artillery at the herd. Some of the deserting soldiers were pardoned, but Art decided he’d had enough of the Army and the United States. Since then, he’s worked as a soldier of fortune across the world, always looking for the next fight.
