THE national interest attached to General Sherman's great campaign in the Southern States,-one of the most brilliant and remarkable military achievements in history, induces the publishers to present, in readable type and compact form, its story as it is told in the words of the gallant hero. The narrative, to adopt the comment upon it of a military critic, is written in "a terse, vigorous, and picturesque style." It will well repay perusal, and cannot fail to convince the reader that power and accuracy of description are not among the least accomplishments of this distinguished soldier.
To render the record complete, General Sherman's Official Report is followed by his correspondence with General Joseph E. Johnston, his testimony before the Congressional Committee on the Conduct of the War, and official and other animadversions passed upon him, in consequence of his original agreement with General Johnston. The latter will be found
fully answered in a defence of his proceedings subjoined, attributed to the pen of his brother, Senator Sherman, as well as in the Report and evidence of the General himself
