The Year of Battles

Excerpt from The Year of Battles The writer feels that no apology is necessary for the attempt here made to portray the progress of a war which, in its rapid movement, its terrible destructiveness, and its stupendous results, is without a parallel in history. The ties which bind us to both the great nations which have been engaged in this sanguinary conflict - ties of kindred, friendship, and commercial intercourse - have made every step of its progress more interesting to us as a people than any other war of modern times, except that in which we ourselves were so recently engaged; and these considerations are sufficient to commend to popular interest any work which gives succinctly, lucidly, and accurately, the events of such a contest. A large experience in historical composition, and especially in the preparation of histories of our own war, has, the writer would fain hope, given him some special qualifications for undertaking this work. It has been his first aim to secure as complete accuracy as possible; and hence he has had recourse to official reports and documents, where they were to be had, and also to the testimony of intelligent and capable eye-witnesses of the various battles. The work is not, however, a mere compilation of war correspondence and official documents. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
