[587] leading officers of the United States army, and some of the ablest military critics in Europe, as well as prominent Confederates in every State of the South, have spoken in high terms of our Papers, The press generally has echoed the sentiment of the New England Historical Register, that “no library, public or private, which pretends to historical fulness, can afford to be without these volumes,” and of the London Saturday Review, that they “contain a mass of information relative to the late war, without a careful study of which no historian, however limited his scope, should venture to treat any fragment of that most interesting story.”

But one of the most emphatic tributes to the value of these publications was contained in a letter from a distinguished Prussian officer, who, after seeing our Papers, avows his purpose of suppressing the first volume of his History of the civil war in America, and writing it over again.
