Author, Stephen Cushman’s expert investigation of Civil War generals’ memoirs as literary historical artifacts relieved reviewer Wesley Moody of his “great reserve.” Cushman’s ability to explain the generals’ memoirs’ varying popularities in the past and present, his examination of their literary allusions, and his examination of the memoirs’ relationship to the turn-of-the-century publishing business makes this book “a considerable contribution to the field of Civil War history,” in Moody’s estimation.
