Civil War Monitor Review

Thanks to Robert Grandchamp for his review on the Civil War Monitor web page.

Grandchamp wrote, “In conclusion, this is a solid, well-written book about a Union general who did much to contribute to the results of the Civil War through his term of service at West Point.” “The book is well researched and sourced from a variety of primary and secondary documents, including the Charles F. Smith Papers at the West Point Archives.”
