|By Horace Porter
Horace Porter was principal aide to General
Grant from the spring of 1864 through the
end of the Civil War. This is an invaluable
first-hand account of the war that is frequently
referenced in subsequent histories of the
war as any close reader of footnotes and
endnotes can determine. Porter's prose is
remarkably fresh, making this an engaging
read. While written from the perspective
of a staunch Unionist, the book is a largely
evenhanded account. This is a work that any
Civil War buff should read.
