accompanying pages embody the result of much toil and inquiry. Fortunately many important war documents, original returns and official reports still exist in private hands, and from them material aid has been derived. In not a few instances the necessary information touching the commissions and commands of general officers has been obtained either from the officers themselves or from the friends of such as fell in the Confederate struggle, or have since died. While perfectness cannot be claimed for it, this Roster may nevertheless be accepted as nearly complete. No labor like the present having been as yet attempted, it is offered in the hope that it will supply an existing deficiency and prove a convenient roll of the Confederate Dramatis Personae of the greatest of modern Revolutions---of which, in the language of Phinius Minor, it may be truthfully affirmed, Si computes annos, exiguum tempus; si vices rerum, aevum putes. Charles C. Jones, Jr. New York City, May 1st, 1876.
