rate army; that did not contain 40,000 men; McDowell's forces were not inferior in numbers to it, and they were not entirely composed of volunteers for ninety days. As the Union army was the attacking party, to speak of them standing their ground or keeping their positions is sheer nonsense. The Confederate forces were driven back, but they were not rallied by Stonewall Jackson; nor were any cannon taken from the battle-field late in the day by Federal troops. Of Jackson's death at Chancellorsville, it is said (page 297), He was returning in the evening to his camp, when he was fired upon through a blunder of some of his own men, and was mortally wounded. Jackson was killed during a lull in the battle while he was preparing to press his victory further. Nothing could be wider of the mark than to say he was returning to his camp. In regard to Gettysburg, it is said (pages 297-8), The armies were equal in numbers, each counting 80,000 men. * * * * The Southern loss is said to h

I have not space to follow out further now these illustrations of the utterly unfair tone and spirit of the book. In other papers I propose to examine in detail some of its false statements, omissions and misrep

had his communications cut off and would have had to surrender, or cut his way through the victorious and enthusiastic hosts that encompassed him. Then sufficient forces could have been spared to send to the assistance of Kirby Smith in Louisiana, of Price in Missouri, and back to Virginia, to reinforce the troops left there, should they have been pressed by the enemy—a contingency hardly to be supposed, considering the condition of our foes in that State after their terrible defeat at Chancellorsville. Finally the navigation of the Mississippi could have been resumed, New Orleans retaken and Banks's army captured. These possibilities presented by General Beauregard in a plan which must be admitted to have been graphically drawn, and in support of which plausible reasons were alleged, produced, we confess, a sort of vertiginous effect upon our mind. We could not prevent the results, announced with such faith, from rising before us like a glorious mirage. But General Lee, instead o
