by Mike Gahagan
In this stirring memoir, we are regaled by a string of anecdotal tales about the legendary State Trooper Mike Mad Dog Gahagan. At times laugh-out-loud hilarious and at others heart-rending, the exploits and adventures of Trooper Gahagan offer keen insight into the world of law enforcement in the straight-shooting, no-holds-barred voice that only Gahagan has. But more than a career rundown, Wearer of the Confederate Gray tells the story of a man, his family, and the path they walk to uphold the law for the safety and betterment of society.
Ever since he was eight years old, Mike Gahagan knew he wanted to be part of the North Carolina Highway Patrol. He served briefly in the Andrews Police Department before living out his dream. He has been a member of many law enforcement organizations. Now retired from Highway Patrol, he is still a sworn law enforcement officer with the Buncombe County Sheriffs Department and the A-B Tech Police Department.
