reminiscences of a Louisiana Tiger /
edited, with an introduction by Terry L. Jones.
|Main Creator:||Seymour, William J.|
"Seymour's memoirs cover in great detail his experience in the Army of Northern Virginia and provide a firsthand account of the campaigns at Chancellorsville, in Pennsylvania, in the Wilderness, and in the Shenandoah Valley, ending with the Battle of Cedar Creek in 1864. Not only does his narrative outline the activities of Hays's Brigade but it also presents a critical analysis of the tactics and strategies the army employed. From his position as staff officer, Seymour was afforded an opportunity to observe the Confederate command system and to note its successes and failures"--Jacket.
