Leading Confederates on the battle of Gettysburg.
[Our series of papers on Gettysburg
has naturally attracted great attention and excited general comment.
It is not surprising that there should be honest differences of opinion among the gallant and accomplished soldiers who participated in the Confederate
assault on that fortress; and the object of our series is to bring out a comparison of views, and thus elicit the real truth.
We publish, therefore, without comment and without endorsation, the opposing views of our friends — only insisting that the discussion shall be confined to those bounds of courtesy which should always characterize gallant knights in search of the truth.]
