Summary
This volume does not assume to be a formal history, nor even to relate more than a modicum of the innumerable incidents of personal adventure and examples of bravery exhibited on both sides during the Civil War. But it is believed to be the first volume in which a representative collection has ever been made of such examples by both Federal and Confederate participants, impartially related. It is believed that the narrative are true, there is no one of them which does not rest upon good authority, after laborious research and frequent comparison. It has been the aim of the author to make the work as nearly impartial as possible, to give no offense to the strongest partisans, North or South, in order to achieve proper neutrality
