Since Barry has mentioned this book, let me add my hosannas. This book ranks
with U.S. Grant and Sam Watkins as *definitive* memoirs of the US Civil War.
In the case of Pvt Sneden, it's his illustrations which make his reputation.
Yes: these three are in the same category of war memoirs as those of Caesar
and Xenophon.

My ggg-grandfather (pvt Wesley Graham, Co C, 25th Tn Inf, CSA) got himself
killed-in-action at the Battle of Mill Springs, KY, 19 Jan 1862. He left a
house full of fatherless kids.
