Louisville (Kentucky, United States) (search for this): chapter 50
is remarkable book, but we propose at some suitable time to review it fully—under some such title as Grant's Memoirs vs. the Official Reports—and to demonstrate how utterly unreliable and untrustworthy it is alike in its statement of events, and its expression of opinions whether about military or civil matters. The publishers have done their part of the work admirably, and the book will, no doubt, continue for some time to come to have a wide sale. the Southern bivouac, published at Louisville, seems to be flourishing, and is publishing many articles of great interest and decided historic value. The December number begins a series of papers by Judge Hines, which give a full history of the secret movement in the Northwest to liberate Confederate prisoners, and encourage and help the peace party. the century continues its war papers, some of which are very valuable, along with a good deal of trash. We would commend these papers much more strongly if the editors had not show

nt and leaders, and such unmistakable reluctance to print corrections of their slanders. The most notable example of this was their publication of a paper on The Alabama, by one professing to have been on board, grossly .slandering the gallant Semmes and his officers and crew. The fellow was promptly exposed, it was proven that no such man was ever on the Alabama, and that his statements were false; but up to this writing the Century has not given its readers the benefit of this proof. Recently, however, this veracious writer of history has been proven to be a man of many aliases—a forger, a swindler, and fraud generally, and is now on trial for his crimes. Surely the Century will now acknowledge its injustice to Semmes in allowing this fellow to write the story of The Alabama. Confederates who will criticise adversely their leaders and disparage their comrades seem to be prime favorites with the Century. Barnes's brief history of the United States has gotten into unexpected

Surely the Century will now acknowledge its injustice to Semmes in allowing this fellow to write the story of The Alabama.

Barnes's brief history of the United States has gotten into unexpected trouble. In its zealous efforts to so sugar-coat the pill that gullible School Boards at the South would the more easily swallow as National their grossly partisan history, the publishers have brought upon themselves the charge of making a Rebel Book, and are under the necessity of making an elaborate defence (which some friend has sent us), and of proving that their book is not Rebel, but trooly loil.

e Army of Northern Virginia to such an extent that it steadily melted away until the end came. Now any one who will read Grant's narrative of this campaign in connection with the official reports—or will compare it with the accounts of Early, Venable, Walter H. Taylor, Swinton, or Humphreys, will see at once that it is all stuff—the veriest romance that was ever attempted to be palmed off as history. The real truth about that campaign is given by Colonel Venable in his address before the ArColonel Venable in his address before the Army of Northern Virginia Association, which we publish in this volume, and is in brief simply this: As soon as Grant with his immense host, crossed the Rapidan, Lee moved out and attacked him—Lee made no move in the campaign which was not to meet the enemy—there was never a day when he did not long for and earnestly seek after an open field and a fair fight—Grant did more entrenching on that campaign than Lee, and his entrenchments were (because of greatly superior facilities) much stronger

Let our children be taught the truth, and learn to take as their heroes not Lincoln, and Grant, and Sherman, and Sheridan, but Davis, and Lee, and Sidney Johnston, and Stonewall Jackson, and Stuart, and A. P. Hill, and the ragged veterans who followed them to an immortality of fame.
