Excerpt from War Pictures: Experiences and Observations of a Chaplain in the U. S. Army, in the War of the Southern Rebellion I have had the privilege of reading, while passing through the press, a book by Rev. J. B. Rogers, entitled "War Pictures," &c. It is a work of thrilling interest, and will be read in many a home in the North-West with blinding tears at the remembrance of lost ones, and yet with a proud throbbing of the heart at the record of the unflinching bravery of those who are to return to more. Mr. Rogers was an eye-witness of most of the scenes he relates, and he possesses the happy faculty of making his reader feel as if he too were gazing upon them. The book proves, not only that he has strong powers for shrewd and intelligent observation, but also that he has a deeply pious and feeling heart. I hope that it may have a wide circulation, for it cannot fail to do good. No one can rise from its perusal, without feeling a deeper love to his country, a loftier admiration for our brave soldiers, and a stronger abhorrence of that system of human bondage, which has brought upon us this fearful war. [From Rev. W. W. Everts, D. D.] I concur in the foregoing views and estimate of the "War Pictures," and predict success to their publication. [From Rev. W. W. Harsha, Pastor South Pres. Church, Chicago.] Mr. Rogers' work embodies much valuable information upon such matters as fall properly under the eye of an army chaplain. The writer is evidently an intelligent, observing man, and knows how to describe what he sees with perspicuity and spirit. Military men may differ with him in his strictures on the conduct of the war, and conservative men may object to his views on the slavery question, but none can fail to glean much valuable information from his pages. The discriminating reader will judge both of his facts and his theories. If the latter do not always please, the former will certainly instruct. The publishers will no doubt reap a golden harvest as the result of their enterprise in placing this work in the hands of the reading public, as it will unquestionably meet with an extensive sale.
