During the Civil War, staff officers had the best seats in the arena. Their unique position gives them an unobstructed view fo combat in all stages and all levels. They are the floating links in the military chain of command. The author of this book grew up in PA, in very comfortable surroundings. His father was governor, he attended Harvard, and West Point. He was Gen. McClennan's chief of Ordnance until 1862 when he transferred to serve Gen. Thomas, commander of the Army of the Cumberland. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for gallantry at the battle of Chickamauga. He quickly came to the attention of Grant and soon joined Grant as staff officer to the supreme commander. This book is an excellent source book for the Civil War and acclaimed from its publication to current times.
