Excerpt from The Nation, Vol. 58: January 4, 1894
Its use is to give permanence and notoriety to an episode similar to many that must survive in the memories of persons still living on the borderland of North and South, the know ledge of which is unfortunately passing away with the. Lives of those who witnessed them. Whenever such a record does appear, it is highly desirable that it should be disseminated in all quarters where sectional feeling is still in vogue, or wherever there are individuals to be found with unreconstructed opinions upon' the subject of the war. Carefully 'read, it may, in a quiet and unobtrusive way, do much to wards making felt the oneness of our national life, and can hardly fail in helping to neutralize the efforts of the sham patriotism which seeks to make political capital by dragging forth the issues of a dead and buried strife.
