n of his admirable work, Major Scheibert has added to his personal observations while in the Confederate States a profound study of the best Northern sources of information on the war. The motto of the author is sine ira et studio. That he should have fallen into some errors is natural, especially from the paucity of Southern documents accessible to him on the campaign of 1864 of the Army of Northern Virginia--the greatest of all of Lee's campaigns-and of the Army of the West, under General Johnston. But his love of truth and spirit of fairness is manifest throughout the book. The work is divided into eight chapters. In the first chapter we have a brief sketch of the war.
