History of the tenth Massachusetts Battery of light Artillery, 1862-1865. By John D. Billings. Boston: Hall & Whiting, Publishers. 1881. This is a well gotten up book of four hundred pages, which tells in interesting style the story of a gallant battery which served with the Army of the Potomac. With few exceptions it seems to be written in a fair spirit, and to strive to do justice to the Confederates--albeit a little more careful study of our official reports and a little less reliance on McCabe's Lee as Confederate authority, would have helped the historic value of the book. On the whole, we commend it as greatly superior to many similar publications. We are indebted to the courteous author for our copy.
