Excerpt from With Grant at Fort Donelson, Shiloh and Vicksburg, and an Appreciation of General U. S Grant

In this year of 1915, when the sounds of bat tle and strife come wafted to us across the sea from Europe, the younger generation are ask ing questions of the Veterans of the Civil War about their experiences in battle.

Formerly I lived in Galena, Ill., and having been personally acquainted with, and a neigh bor of General U. S. Grant, and one of the 'boys in Blue who followed him in the battles of Fort Donelson, Shiloh and Vicksburg, I deem it my privilege to add my mite to the history that clusters round the greatest military genius of modern times.

To please many friends who have heard my lectures on the Civil War, and at the request of my children, the following pages have been written, from data made at the time and since, and from a vivid memory of the stirring days of 1862 and 1863.
