Publisher's Summary

In the decades that followed the American Civil War, artist James E. Kelly (1855-1933) conducted in-depth interviews with more than 40 Union generals in an effort to accurately portray them in their greatest moment of glory."I had always felt a great lack of certain personal details," Kelly explained. "I made up my mind to ask from the living officers every question that I would have asked Washington or his generals had they posed for me, such as what they considered the principal incidents in their career and particulars about costumes and surroundings." When, during one interview, a general declared, "I don't see how you can show this in a picture," Kelly responded: "Just tell me the facts, and I'll attend to the picture." By recording those stirring facts, Kelly left us a truly unique picture of the great figures of the American Civil War.

You won't find this stuff in a history book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I found this book hard to put down! Kelly asks questions that any of us would like to ask the Generals who fought in the Civil War. You get a very good idea what it was like to know them in personal life.<br/><br/>This book was well organized, and Mr Styple is to be commended for digging this one up and giving it to us as Kelly would have liked to have done.<br/><br/>Also, there is a follow up book "Tell me of Lincoln" that expands on the person of Lincoln and Old New York.
