Captain McCabe, in sending this list, says:
Although greatest vigilance has been exercised in compiling this roster of the graduates of the Military Academy, who entered the Confederate army, together with statement of highest rank obtained by them and dates of their commission, it is well nigh impossible that some errors should not occur, owing to the confused condition of existing records. The list of those who attained rank of Brigadier-General, Major-General, Lieutenant-General and of full General, is believed to be complete and exact. In justice to many brave and able young officers, who did not reach higher rank than that of regimental field officers, it must be remembered that many of these were killed or permanently disabled for further active service by severe wounds in 1861, and especially in 1862. Thus death or grievous wounds cut short many careers of brilliant promise. The great majority of officers named in this roster were wounded, some of them severely, three, four and five times, during the four years of the war, but this fact has not been noted in the roster. The simple record, as it stands, constitutes, together with that of the officers who served on the Union side, a brilliant vindication of the Military Academy, and of the methods, aims, and scientific training that have characterized this great nursery of able and accomplished soldiers since its foundation.The record of General Alexander P. Stewart has been filled out in the list below to show the general form in which all should be completed, though this record of General Stewart's service is too brief.
