SHERMAN'S HISTORICAL RAID. THE MEMOIRS IN THE LIGHT OF THE RECORD; A Review Based Upon Compilations From the Files of the War Office

Cincinnati: Wilstach, Baldwin & Company, 1875. First Edition. Cloth. 276 pages. Facsimile of the original draft of General Sherman's Terms with Johnston. Blue cloth with gilt cover and spine titling. 6" x 8 3/4". The author takes issue with General W. T. Sherman's recitation of many facts in Sherman's Memoirs. As Boynton states in his Preface, "The object of the present compilation, chiefly fom the official records, is to show wherein the Memoirs of General Sherman fall far short of presenting the correct history of many great events of which they treat; how much they lack of giving a complete account of incidents which they relate; how far the author's recollection, even when corrected by his own memoranda, is at fault; and to furnish the future historian with facts which will guard him against perpetuating the error and the injustice which pervade both volumes of the work." A useful volume for Civil War scholars and collectors. A Very Good Plus copy (spine sunned; spine-ends worn), now in a custom clear mylar jacket.
